In Greater China, we primarily target minority growth equity investments in high quality companies that operate in industries that we believe will be the primary drivers of China's economic growth over the next decade. We seek outstanding management partners that are in need of both growth capital and constructive equity sponsorship to satisfy a range of balance sheet, governance and strategic needs.
