Beijing-based private equity and venture capital firm, Keys Fund, says it has formed a strategic cooperation with Lombard Global, a Plano, Texas-headquartered investment banking and management consulting firm.
Founded in 2011, Keys fund focuses on investing in early and expansion stage companies in the healthcare, new material, advanced equipment, TMT (technology, media, telecommunications) and green energy sectors.
"We’ll receive new deal flows and clients from the Americas, while Lombard will grow its base in the largest emerging market," says David Zhou, CEO of Keys Fund. "This collaboration will bring a high level of added value to our current portfolio and future clients."
"We believe the optimal time to invest in technology innovation and growth in China is now, not after the economy restructures," says William Billeaud, president of Lombard Global. "This partnership will increase our commitment to the long-term growth in China.”
Keys Fund is headed by David Zhou and Gao Zhenzhu.
