Tahan Capital Management, established in 2009, is a leading Asia credit focused alternative asset manager. It is founded by its five principals with combined experience of more than 100 years.
Our goal is to achieve consistent long term superior returns sustained by capital appreciation and income, with a focus on capital preservation throughout economic and credit cycles.
Who we Are
Our name “Tahan” is a congruence of meanings from various Asian references.
The direct translation from the Chinese characters appearing on our logo references one of the most prosperous periods in Chinese history – the era of the “Han” Dynasty.
“Tahan” in Bahasa Malay means to “persevere”. Mount Tahan (“Gunung Tahan” in Bahasa Malay) is the highest point in Peninsular Malaysia, its ascent an arduous but rewarding climb.
The pan Asian perspective is enshrined in the name, and it highlights the need for cross cultural appreciation and understanding of local dynamics. It is our belief that to achieve long term sustained success over multiple economic cycles requires perseverance and discipline.
