More about "Preferred Access"

Through CapBridge's "Preferred Access", individual accredited investors are now 
able to directly discover and access private equity opportunities. The 
"Preferred Access" product gives investors the ability to invest in multiple 
private deals at smaller ticket sizes, which has the added effect of 
diversifying their investment portfolios.

Available to accredited investors, all investment opportunities in the 
"Preferred Access" programme are led by experienced professional investors who 
are committing their own funds and performing due diligence on the investment.

"Preferred Access" participants will be able to view all available investment 
deals on the CapBridge platform. These deals have been negotiated and invested 
in by professional investors. Participants can select the opportunity in which 
they wish to co-invest and pledge their desired investment amount.

When the target interest amount as set by the company raising capital is 
achieved, the investment in the company will be executed. Investors receive 
returns directly upon a liquidity event such as an Initial Public Offering 

Private companies can also use the "Preferred Access" programme as part of 
their capital raising exercise. With the CapBridge platform, growth companies 
can access global private capital in an intelligent and cost-efficient manner, 
while remaining privately-held. 

One of the first few companies to participate in the "Preferred Access" 
programme is a highly innovative healthcare equipment company based in the US.

About CapBridge Pte Ltd

CapBridge is a global investment syndication platform for private 
opportunities. The CapBridge co-investment syndication platform serves 
mid-to-late stage growth companies and the funds that focus on them. Our 
co-investment model is built with investors in mind. We first bring 
opportunities to lead investors, who leverage their specific industry knowledge 
to conduct due diligence, negotiate value adding investment structures, and 
manage their portfolio positions to the desired exit.

We then open up the same opportunities to co-investors as they leverage on the 
lead investors' expertise in specific industry fields and diligence work. 
Co-investors sign with the same terms as the lead investors and realize better 
risk-adjusted returns and a more likely exit. Companies benefit from working 
with lead investors who understand their sector well and can directly 
value-add, as well as broadening the shareholder base with co-investors who can 
add network connectivity and assist towards a more successful listing further 
down the road.

The co-investment process is conducted electronically on our intelligent 
platform, which works ceaselessly to match deals with investors and facilitate 
the deal process.
