Tikehau Capital’s strong global institutional relationships and extensive track record in the private credit space, combined with UOBKH’s deep local networks, allow the new private credit strategy to tap on a unique nexus of sourcing and diligence channels. This strategic collaboration is in line with Tikehau Capital’s strategy to continue to expand its global footprint, particularly across Asia, deepening its presence in a region where it has 10 years of operating history.

Antoine Flamarion and Mathieu Chabran, co-founders of Tikehau Capital said: “As Asian markets demonstrate continued robust growth and positive structural shifts, there is an ongoing demand among mid-market businesses in the region for funding to enhance working capital and refinance existing debts. Our partnership with UOBKH will give Asian mid-market businesses access to alternative funding sources, whilst simultaneously offering investors a unique opportunity to engage with private credit as an investment class”.
