Immensus Capital is a mid-growth private equity firm that invests in high-growth businesses located in China. One of the firm’s current strategies is to explore investments in B2B supply chain business opportunities in China.

As a research-driven firm, Immensus Capital aims to conduct more in-depth analysis of sectors, companies, and management teams than our industry peers. We also provide extensive research and strategic advice as well as executive coaching to portfolio companies from pre-investment to post-investment.

Immensus Capital gives our offshore investors an “inside view” into unique investment opportunities within China. The firm’s attention to detail is supported by deep industry experience and rich cultural and business knowledge of our fully localized teams in China. We are passionate about Chinese investment opportunities and curious about changes within the market, from global trends to management and leadership styles. We concentrate on sectors that are largely overlooked or ignored by other funds within growth capital, giving us a valuable “first mover” advantage.

We have offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen with eight industry professionals specialized in both investments and operations.


In July 2016, Immensus Capital was established in Shenzhen, China, by Robert Yao, a China PE specialist with two decades of investment experience at Fortress, Mount Kellett Capital, and Goldman Sachs Asia Special Situations Group in Hong Kong.

In May 2018, the firm launched Fund I with total committed capital of US$ 50m (RMB 340m). Fund I was fully invested by the end of 2019 into five portfolio companies, including four B2B companies and one supply chain-based consumption upgrade company in China.

In November 2020, the firm launched its Fund II with a target size of US$ 150m. In the same year, the firm established a strategic partnership with HS Group, which is one of the latest Asia-based seed capital providers to alternative investment firms. In early 2021, Immensus Capital opened its second office in Hong Kong.
