Founded in 2012, Sailing Capital (“Sailing”) is the first major private equity fund on the global stage with its initial capital raised domestically in Chinese Yuan (RMB). Sailing was initiated by Shanghai International Group (SIG) mainly for investment overseas.
Our LPs include some of the most successful and influential companies in China.
Our underlying fund size is currently set to reach RMB 50 billion (US$ 8 billion) and we have successfully completed our first round of fundraising of RMB 12 billion (US$ 1.9 billion).
Sailing engages in direct investment and intends to establish industry-specific or geography-specific sub-funds to manage jointly with the key co-investor(s) in each.
Sailing’s commitments can take the form of equity, equity-linked, mezzanine and/or debt capital contributed on a full acquisition, majority or minority basis.
Our multinational and experienced team possesses a variety of backgrounds in and outside of China, including Wall Street’s bulge bracket, the international legal community, blue chip conglomerates and the Big Four accountancies.
