A Singapore startup has unveiled a global platform to cultivate cross-border mid-market direct investments in Asia. How does it work?

Finquest, has launched its solution to combine a database of M&A and investment professionals with analytic technology and industry expertise to manufacture a conduit for global investors, M&A advisors, and Asian mid-market companies to find each other.

Its first-of-its kind platform combines the use of smart predictive algorithms, a proprietary database, and industry expertise to deliver quality, curated introductions for its clients, the firm said in a press release.

Strictly Confidential

Finquest supports three specific groups: institutional investors looking to strengthen and diversify their direct investment portfolios; reputable Corporate Finance and M&A advisors who want to enlarge their global access to investors; and companies who need to finance their next stage of growth or seek acquisitions or exit opportunities.

Finquest’s platform is designed to guarantee confidentiality and data security at every stage of the process. To maintain privacy and information confidentiality, no profile or deal information is visible on the platform, until an introduction is made.

There is an estimated half a million mid-market companies in Asia. These companies are too small to go public, but too large to have their corporate finance needs met by early-stage venture capital firms, crowdfunding platforms, or peer-to-peer lending. Furthermore, less than 1 per cent of these companies are currently backed by private equity.

Booming Investment Universe

With economic growth in Asia continuing to outpace other regions, the world’s institutional investors are becoming more interested in exploring opportunities in this market. However, lack of access and the market’s overwhelming size and complexity are blocking progress. This has created a need for smart matching that Finquest claims to provide on its platform.

«Finquest is a strong believer in the unique combination of proprietary database, smart predictive algorithms, and human capital to deliver the most relevant and actionable curated introductions to its clients, we are providing a convenient gateway to an untapped but booming investment universe,» said Tanguy Lesselin, CEO and Co-Founder at Finquest.
