CEO Greetings

Thank you for visiting Simone Investment Managers.

This is our 9th spring since the founding Simone Investment Managers. We have achieved continual growth thanks to support from our clients. We would once again like to appreciate for the warm support.

Despite our continual growth, we are still striving for further expansion and are determined to build a new vision for Simone Investment Managers.

We would like to inform our achievements and investment vehicles. Our global real estate, global securities/venture ‘Privately Placed Collective Investment Vehicle’  are operating successfully. In terms of ‘Private Equity Fund(PEF)/Buyout Vehicle’, we have successfully liquidated our first fund with a size of approximately $230mn and are successfully executing new investments. We would also like our clients to know that we have added a new type in our fund line-up earlier this year : We started investing in new technology companies using “investment associations” as funding vehicles.

On the other hand, we would be pleased to share with our customers another fact that in the second half of last year we established a new investment team specializing in “SOC and Infrastructure” to expand our investment area. We have hired the best-in-class professionals and have set-up a dedicated compliance & asset management system for the team.

We will utilize and build our strength and capabilities to achieve success in the market. Our firm’s key strengths and capabilities are as the following: 1) Investment professional with successful track records, 2) Global brand awareness and business capability of our parent company, Simone, 3) Ethical management and strong risk & compliance process and IT backed system, 4) Information and strategic capability enabling investment into diverse assets, 5) Global network enabling investment target discovery, screening and investment collaboration.

By leveraging these unique strengths and capabilities, we will continue to build a successful history in Korea’s financial market.
