The deal team at Lion Cao Asset Management

Over the last several years, Lion Cao principals have led investments into more than 40 funds, managers and direct and co-investments. In several cases, Lion Cao was a day-one/early investor and thus maintains strong ties to the operating teams and founders of funds that have since grown to be much larger and more prominent.

Lion Cao principals have started and managed private equity funds and fund-of-funds and have invested directly into a broad range of sectors including: financials, real estate, shipping, chemicals, media and technology, distressed assets and consumer products and services.

Lion Cao principals have also developed special relationships with key wealthy families from around the globe, including South and Central America, the U.S., Europe and Asia. Given the broad sector and geographic reach of these funds and families, our close relationships with them provides us with “ground-level” access to management teams in numerous industries and countries and supplies us with first-hand knowledge of the market forces with which they deal.
