Who we are
Auster Capital is founded by Jennifer Yu with the sponsorship of Rothschild & Co
  • Auster Capital is a private equity manager founded by Jennifer Yu and Rothschild Merchant Bank. Before founding Auster Capital, Ms. Yu was the Chairperson of Rothschild & Co in Greater China
  • In May 2020, we successfully launched Auster Fund I, L.P., our first Cayman Islands Limited Partnership (the "Fund"), with capital commitments from sovereign wealth fund, financial institutions, industry leaders and family offices. The Fund’s final target size is $1 billion
  • We are an independent manager with the objective to deliver solid and steady returns to all our investors

What we do
Majority or minority investment in European companies, along with strategic and financial investors
  • The Fund primarily invests in businesses in Europe that have an existing or potential China angle to their business and value proposition
    • We focus on the industrial, healthcare, and consumer sectors
  • We make both majority and minority investments
    • For majority investments, we are looking to form a consortium with a private equity partner or Chinese strategic to bring complimentary values to the deal and to diversify risks. We are flexible to stake size and structure
    • For minority transactions, such as recapitalizations or the provision of growth capital, we can invest alone as long as the existing shareholding structure is institutionalized. We can provide value by helping the company on its China business and provide partial liquidity to existing shareholders
  • The Fund's target equity check size is between $50M-$150M
  • The Fund also has a capped capital pool to make investment outside of the above core geography and sectors
