Virtual Roundtable feat. Charles H. Ferguson, General Manager Asia, Globalization Partners

Welcome to this Virtual Roundtable discussion featuring Charles H. Ferguson, General Manager Asia at Globalization Partners, on internationalisation strategies for private equity portfolio companies.

To pivot their portfolio companies toward growth, private equity (PE) investors have relied on a variety of tools to survive a global recession and the shift to a remote work environment. From capital injection, to restructuring process assistance, to technology deployment, firms are working with their portfolio companies to maintain market relevance.  Additionally, for PE firms, one of the most effective ways to drive value to their portfolio companies has been through international expansion. Join Charles H. Ferguson, General Manager Asia, Globalization Partners, and private equity firms and investors, as he discusses the different ways private equity is building resilience in its portfolios and looking at internationalisation. 

As General Manager and Head of Globalization Partners business in Asia, Charles is responsible for establishing scale and efficiency for the company’s business expansion in one of the most dynamic markets in the world. Charles is an expert on the advisory and operating side of private equity and venture capital, with over a decade of experience building teams for PE and VC organisations, focused on defining their GTM strategy.

Charles was most recently group Chief Commercial Officer for Tricor Group (an asset of UK based investment firm Permira), a leading business expansion specialist in Asia, with global knowledge and local expertise in business, corporate, investor, human resources & payroll, and corporate trust & debt services. He is currently an Industry Advisor for Advent International, the US-based investment firm, focused on the Asia Pacific market region, dealing with origination, strategy of value creation, and post-merger commercial integration approaches.
