VanAsia FAQ

  1. Raising Capital? What’s that?
There are ultimately just three main ways companies can raise money to grow: from net earnings from operations, by borrowing, or by issuing equity capital. Debt and equity capital are commonly obtained from external investors, that will provide cash for shares in your company.

  2. What is Private Equity Financing?

    Private equity consists of investors, Venture capitalists, and funds that make investments directly into private companies that are not listed on the stock exchange. Money raised by family and friends is a typical example.

  3. What is a Private Equity Investment firm?
A private equity firm is an investment company that makes investments in the private equity of operating companies through a variety of loosely affiliated investment strategies including leveraged buyout, venture capital, and growth capital.

  4. What is Venture Capital
    Venture capital is, strictly speaking, a subset of private equity and refers to equity investments made for the launch, early development, or expansion of a business. It has a particular emphasis on entrepreneurial startups rather than on mature businesses. 

  5. What is the Difference between Private Equity & Venture Capital?

    Private equity and venture capital may refer to different stages of the investment but the essential definition remains the same: it is the provision of capital, after a process of negotiation between the investment fund manager and the entrepreneur, with the aim of developing the business and creating value.
  6. What is a Liquidity Event?
In corporate finance, a liquidity event is the merger, purchase, or sale of a corporation or an initial public offering. A liquidity event is a typical exit strategy of a private company since the liquidity event typically converts the ownership equity held by a company’s founders and investors into cash. 

  7. How Do You Select the Companies You Raise Capital For?
The companies that we work with are vetted by our management team, our lawyers, and accountants before we present them to any investor. Sometimes our vetting process will take months to complete. In most instances there are upfront fees in order to proceed with evaluations, analysis, and determining the best financing option. These are clearly defined and transparent. VanAsia is bound by the BC Securities Commission and the Singapore Securities Commission to conduct Due Diligence on all companies we work with and we are subject to audits to make sure we have complied.
