099: Giovanni Zangani – Private Equity in Vietnam


 
Private Equity is an area we have not covered before, but we had an interesting discussion with Giovanni Zangani on that topic. His journey from Milan to Ho Chi Minh City went through Europe, the United States and Hong Kong before arriving in Vietnam.  Giovanni made a strategic decision to study for his MBA at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and that began his experiences in Asia.  While looking for his initial job after graduating, he found a great opportunity in Vietnam and ran with it.  His instincts and interests matched the market need and he focused on the Food & Beverage and Retail sectors which ended up being a sweet spot of growth for the Vietnamese economy. Listen as Giovanni gives more detail about why those sectors were his focus and why starting Maestro Equity Partners was the natural next step in his professional development.  Listen as well to his philosophy around how a strong relationship helps build a sustainable partnership with his firm’s clients.
