The team at Cassia are Asia investment specialists with talents in deal origination, post-transaction portfolio management, operations, and brand building.

It’s important to bring new ideas to the table though, so along with the more traditional skill-sets, we provide partnership and expertise in growing desirable brands.

We’re a youthful team, yet between us have built up a strong track-record after high-profile roles at JP Morgan, KPMG, Baker Tilly, Deloitte, First Eastern Investment Group, and PwC. And while Cassia has its roots in Asia, we’re experienced in working in key markets all across the globe.
