Indian boutique PE advisory firm Lexygen has launched its office in

Singapore. According to Vijay Sambamurthi, founder of Lexygen, the new

office was aimed at helping Lexygen tap into the various opportunities

for trade and investment in the India-South East Asia corridor. The

investment firm, which opened in Bangalore three years ago, counts

Baring Private Equity Asia, Morgan Stanley Infrastructure Fund,

Bessemer Venture Partners and Sycamore Ventures among its clients.


"Opening our first overseas office in Singapore was the next logical

step in our growth strategy. Singapore is one of the most vibrant and

important finance and services hubs in the world, and our foray into

Singapore is driven by the plethora of opportunities presented by the

increasingly strong economic and cultural ties that India and

Singapore share,” said Sambamurthi.


The firm has been advising Baring on several of its India deals,

including the $100m acquisition of a significant minority stake in

architectural design services business RSP Design Consultants (India).

Lexygen also worked with Orient Green Power, a renewable energy

company registered under the laws of Singapore, in connection with the

infusion of $55m in a private equity funding round led by Olympus

Capital.
