OUR STORY

Group Managing Partner, Mike Lukin discusses how Roc Partners was established and our journey to where we are today.

Our beliefs

As pioneers of private markets in Asia-Pacific, we explore opportunities using our experience and insight to access the potential others might overlook. We take an astute and analytical approach to solving complex problems and realising value. It’s these skills, together with our deep sector expertise and commitment to excellence, that enable us to deliver exceptional outcomes for our portfolio companies and investors.

We understand the power of relationships. Our people go out of their way to listen, to understand, and develop partnerships that will stand the test of time. Our success is built on a foundation of mutual-respect and genuine commitment to the long-term success of our investors and partners.

In our rapidly changing and complex world, we believe responsible and sustainable investing is critical in building long-term value. We never lose sight of the significance of the investment decisions we make and the influence we have on the portfolio companies and General Partners (GPs) we work with. We hold ourselves and our investees to the same high standards in the actions we take to transition to a more sustainable economy.
