Private equity in Cambodia remains underdeveloped and under-defined. This does not mean that private equity is not an important part of our practice however. With the high cost of local financing and the inherent risk of an emerging market, many projects rely on private equity funding to get off the ground.
The Cambodian private equity market does not look quite like it does in more developed jurisdictions. It is complicated, with unforeseen challenges and hidden risks. Investors need innovative solutions to complete transactions. Financial and political uncertainty, labor unrest and rapidly evolving regulations are all potential pitfalls for the private equity investor. But the rewards in Cambodia are worth it. With massive potential growth these sharply underserved markets are prime targets for the adventurous private equity investor.
