Bintang Capital Partners is an award-winning Southeast Asian impact-focused private equity firm headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Founded in 2018, Bintang believes that a responsible approach towards capitalism will yield superior investment returns as well as better social and environmental outcomes – as reflected in its vision of “Investing in a Better World”.
Bintang is amongst ASEAN’s leading advocates and proponents for a more responsible 4P approach towards capitalism – using Purpose as a driving force to focus on People and Planet to generate sustainable Profits.
To achieve this, Bintang “Partners the Great to do Good” – the firm works closely with its entrepreneurs, employees, investors, investees and partners to deliver sustainable financial, commercial, environmental and social outcomes for its stakeholders.
Bintang was amongst the first Malaysian signatories to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) and is the first Malaysian signatory to the Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles), an initiative spearheaded by the International Financial Corporation (IFC) under the World Bank Group.
In May 2023, Bintang became the first B Corp Certified private equity firm in Southeast Asian history.
Bintang’s long term goal is to build 150 B Corp certified portfolio companies by 2050. Commencing with its maiden fund, BCP Asia Fund I, the firm requires that all investee companies obtain B Corp Certification within a pre-set timeline post-investment.
Beyond financial returns, Bintang also aims to create direct social and environmental impact across the communities it operates in. In 2022, the firm established the Bintang Foundation Pledge whereby 10% of Bintang’s profits will be committed to impact, charity, and welfare initiatives in perpetuity. Furthermore, a third of places within Bintang’s annual Internship Programs are reserved for high potential youth from under-represented and under-privileged backgrounds.
