Lionsgate Capital Limited is a Hong Kong-based principal investment and advisory firm established in 2010

The firm seeks out “under the radar” international investment opportunities primarily in the natural resources, energy/renewables, TMT and healthcare sectors. Lionsgate is not a fund. Where possible, it invests alongside its larger institutional partners, creating a broader potential deal landscape whilst simultaneously bringing caution and rigour to its approach. In certain circumstances Lionsgate will offer corporate advisory services without an initial investment.
