We have a strong reputation for solving time-sensitive and complex situations. Our clients who consist of Chairman’s and Executives of private and public companies approach us first when they are in need of liquidity as we provide competitive terms & conditions, and more importantly timing and size of the loan, compared to local banks and securities firms that cannot execute due to capital constraints and regulatory limitations.

The Real Estate sector is going through a period of considerable change.

However, we believe in timing, and turning a crisis into an opportunity.
JDLK GROUP specializes in opportunistic, time-sensitive, and special situation investments in Asia-Pacific, with a focus on Vietnam.

Through these acquisitions we developed a relationship with VAMC, which allowed us to engage in distressed and special situation assets. In addition, gave us a presence in the manufacturing space as we now have factories and facilities in Vietnam, Korea and Hong Kong.
