The Penjana Initiative
Transforming the economy together
The Penjana Nasional Fund is a RM1.2 billion investment fund established by the Malaysian Government to drive the country’s economic recovery and support the local private capital industry. Designed as public-private collaboration, the Malaysian Government will match commitments from 3rd party domestic and international investors.
BCP Asia Partners, a joint venture between Bintang Capital Partners and CMIA Capital Partners of Singapore, was selected as a Fund Manager for the Growth category of the Penjana Nasional Fund in December 2020.
BCP Asia Partners was formed through a collaborative effort by three leading houses,
reflecting the joint heritage and mission of its three constituents:

CMIA Capital Partners was established in 2003 and has led and managed private equity investments in China and Southeast Asia totaling more than $1 billion across various industries.
Penjana Kapital was incorporated on 1 July 2020 as part of the Government of Malaysia’s initiative to accelerate Malaysia’s economic recovery.
