About CDIB Capital Group
Experience in PE & VC investment
CDIB Capital Group (“CCG”), formerly China Development Corporation and later China Development Industrial Bank, was the first private development-oriented financial institution in Taiwan. Established in 1959 through the coordinating efforts of the Economic Stabilization Committee of the Executive Yuan, the World Bank and private funding, CCG was restructured in 1999 to become an industrial bank. Since its founding, CCG has remained focused on principal investing and, until 2015, corporate banking businesses. It has invested in and provided services to domestic and overseas clients in over 100 industries, and it continues to play a critical role in Taiwan's venture and private equity, as well as liquid equity and credit capital markets.
CCG has been a pioneer among local investment banks. For 60 years, CCG has been a driving force behind of Taiwan's industrial evolution. CCG has been leveraging its advantages gained through years of investment experience and a strong industrial network to further expand its business scope. With its highly regarded brand, seasoned management team, strong network, and access to co-investment opportunities, CCG actively helps companies grow and enhance business value by offering operational planning and IPO advisory services, as well as assistance identifying possible strategic alliances.
CCG has developed a successful asset management business since its business transformation in 2013. CCG currently manages 10 private equity and venture capital funds, denominated in US dollars, NT dollars, and renminbi. Each fund has a designated team and well-defined investment strategy and our investors include local as well as global blue-chip companies, financial institutions and high-net-worth investors. Portfolio companies across Greater China, Asia-Pacific and North America include the full investment cycle spectrum, from incubation, early stage, and growth stage investments to late-stage, mature businesses.
CCG established the Strategic Advisory Group in 2017 with a seasoned investment team offering fund investment advisory services to regional institutional clients. The Strategic Advisory Group leverages CCG’s extensive experience in third-party venture capital, private equity and real estate funds investing, and offers client with bespoke solutions, including fund investment screening and post-investment support. The Strategic Advisory Group provides tailor-made fund investment programs for clients seeking well-balanced and diversified portfolios.
On May 1, 2015, CCG’s corporate banking and financial market operations were transferred to KGI Bank, enabling CCG to focus solely on its principal investing activities, including both venture capital and private equity fund businesses primarily in Taiwan, mainland China, the Asia-Pacific region, and, internationally, in the United States and Western Europe. CCG is now transitioning from and supplementing its historical roots in principal investment through proprietary capital on its own balance sheet to a full-fledged manager of third party assets in venture capital and private equity. This evolution is underpinned by the goal of becoming the leading private equity and venture capital fund manager in the Asia-Pacific region. With the approval of the Financial Supervisory Commission, R.O.C., China Development Industrial Bank was officially renamed CDIB Capital Group with this underlying business transformation in March 2017.
