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