Teck Loon Goh joined Warburg in August, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He was previously responsible for managing GGV Capital’s relationships with its limited partners – institutional investors, including endowments and family offices, that commit capital to VC funds – globally for more than three years.
In his new role at Warburg, he will continue to be based in Singapore in a full-time capacity. Warburg Pincus confirmed his appointment to its Asia Fundraising and IR team in an email.
Before GGV Capital, Goh was a member of the Investment Management Division at Goldman Sachs for 12 years and a founding member of Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s Asia PE fund of funds business in 2006.
He joins Warburg Pincus about a year after the global PE firm raised more than $4.25 billion for its China and Southeast Asia-focused PE fund.
The fund, Warburg Pincus China SEA II, invests in Chinese and Southeast Asian portfolio companies alongside the firm’s global PE fund, Warburg Pincus Global Growth Fund LP, which closed in late 2018 at $14.8 billion.
New York-based Warburg Pincus invests across geographies and sectors at all stages of a company’s life-cycle from its diversified global private equity funds.
The firm established its first institutional fund in 1971 and over the last four decades, has raised private equity funds with committed capital totalling more than $74 billion.
GGV Capital was an early investor in Southeast Asia’s largest consumer internet company Grab that today commands a valuation of over $14 billion. Its portfolio also includes house-sharing platform Airbnb, China’s ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing, messaging app Slack and Beijing Bytedance, owner of popular short video app Tik Tok.
GGV Capital managing partner Hans Tung said in January that the VC firm would be more selective in investing in Southeast Asia and India as valuations in these markets have risen very fast.
