Japan-based firms Dream Incubator Inc. and ORIX Corporation have unveiled a private equity vehicle that will invest promising Vietnamese companies.

The new vehicle, the DI Asian Industrial Fund L.P., has an initial capital commitment of 5 billion yen (US$55 million), with a 1 billion yen capital commitment by both DI and ORIX.

The firms said that the fund will primarily invest in domestic-focused companies that are essential for growth in Vietnam such as consumable products as well as retail and distribution industries. The fund will also provide technological and sales know-how from Japanese companies that have invested in the fund to help increase the value of local companies in which it has invested.
