Investment Strategy

Leopard Capital Cambodia’s investment strategy and guidelines

The investment strategy focuses on venture, expansion, and buy-out opportunities primarily in the Cambodian mid-market. Targeted sectors include rural focused financial services, agribusiness/food production, energy and telecom infrastructure, consumer goods, and building materials.

Our investment style is particularly hands-on, as some of our investments will be in an early stage. We will work closely with the investee companies management teams on strategic and operational issues spanning product / market development, executive recruitment, fund-raising, and financial control. Leopard Capital ensures that its funds fulfill corporate social responsibility standards.
