Digital Investments

To focus on strategic investments as our core holding, our attractive and diverse investment portfolio showcases promising digital new economy companies in Asia.

Our portfolio companies allow us to access unique opportunities and resources that complement the AMTD SpiderNet ecosystem, and we engage the portfolio companies with connections in the AMTD SpiderNet

AMTD also established a S$50 million AMTD ASEAN Solidarity Fund partnering with the Singapore FinTech Association, or SFA, and S$6 million MAS-SFA-AMTD FinTech Solidarity Grant, partnering with the MAS and the SFA. Both the AMTD ASEAN Solidarity Fund and the MAS-SFA-AMTD FinTech Solidarity Grant focus on investing in or providing funding and business support to those leading FinTech companies with growth potential and possibility to create synergies with AMTD SpiderNet’s stakeholders.

Investment Approach

AMTD sources investment opportunities through the AMTD SpiderNet and focus on investing in a small number of elite companies that we believe will complement and bring value to our ecosystem, including companies within and outside the digital finance sector.

We leverage resources in the AMTD SpiderNet throughout the investment process to source investments, evaluate opportunities, and provide value added solutions to our portfolio companies after our investment.

We focus on how the investments can contribute to the AMTD SpiderNet ecosystem, rather than looking for investment returns. Our investments allow us to access the management teams of our portfolio companies and provide us with greater insights and connections in various industries.

We have an experienced team for post-investment value creation. We proactively seek opportunities to engage our portfolio companies into our SpiderNet ecosystem.

Where circumstances justify, we make investments using cash investment combined with an equity swap (ie. issuance of our ordinary shares in exchange for the equity interests of the investees). Through our equity swap arrangements, we ensure business interests of our portfolio companies are aligned with ours.

Investment Process

Assessing the target on:

Our investment committee consists of key management team members covering finance, investments, and legal and compliance, which assesses, reviews and modifies our investment strategies from time to time based on accumulated deal execution experience and the latest developments in the financial market, of the economic conditions, and regarding government policies.

We closely monitor our portfolio companies in accordance with the guidelines set by the investment committee, tracking their business and technology development, competitive landscape, latest technological trends, and economics/risks of each portfolio.
