Bond Asian Ventures Limited
Bond Asian Ventures Limited (BAV), a privately held entity, was established 24 years ago as a facilitator of technology transfers and investments between the West and the East, operating from Hong Kong and London. It is not a hedge fund. Its experience in funding transactions has created a unique approach to de-risking projects and facilitating fair investment deals.
Previous investments have largely been in start-up funding of projects and their related intellectual property. BAV provides consulting and specialised interim operations for investment-related projects and is involved in strategic corporate consulting for mergers and acquisitions, other corporate restructuring, buyout and funding/financing transactions.
BAV created Glacex (the Global Autonomous Commercial Exchange) to match projects needing funds with suitable professional investors in a way that minimises risk, maximises prospects of success, and promotes the fairness of the deal. Speed of response and decisions is another key characteristic. The process depends on a paced build-up of review, due diligence, and investee commitment.
Glacex investments are typically off market and off balance sheet, and hence treated in strict confidentiality. We are, however, able to disclose the following sample investments:
|USA||250m||Oil & Gas|
The registered address of BAV is Suite 1104, Crawford House, 70 Queen's Road, Hong Kong. In the UK, GLACEX LLP is registered as company no. OC402352.
