Driven by our recognition of the mid-to-long-term growth in air traffic demand, particularly in emerging economies, Marubeni entered the aircraft leasing business in 2010, followed by the engine leasing business in 2011. In 2013, we took a stake in Aircastle Ltd., a major player in the aircraft leasing industry. Then, in 2020, we solidified our commitment to the industry by completing the full acquisition of Aircastle Ltd., acquiring all of its shares alongside Mizuho Leasing. With this strategic move, we are well-positioned to provide top-notch leasing services and capitalize on the increasing demand for air travel.
At Marubeni, we understand that each of our clients has unique financial needs, which is why we offer an extensive lineup of products to meet those needs. In 2020, we re-entered the U.S. vendor finance market by acquiring Auxilior Capital Partners, Inc. through Mizuho Marubeni Leasing (formerly MG Leasing) following a successful capital restructuring. Going forward, we will continue to collaborate with Mizuho Leasing Company to expand Mizuho Marubeni Leasing as a Marubeni Group captive business, allowing us to expand our domain in overseas markets and deliver even greater value to our clients.
In addition to our leasing solutions, we are also investing in the future of digital financial services for consumers. In 2020, we made a strategic investment in AND Global, a fintech company headquartered in Mongolia with a development facility dedicated to advancing digital financial services. Our forward-thinking approach allows us to anticipate and meet the growing global demand for innovative financial solutions.
At Marubeni, we have a proud history as pioneers in the domestic private equity fund business. With a focus on small and medium-sized companies both in Japan and overseas, we work closely with our business partners to plan and manage private equity funds. Our goal is to provide comprehensive solutions that benefit all stakeholders, including investors, portfolio companies, and society as a whole.
Leveraging over 20 years of investment expertise, we combine our capabilities as a general trading company with the unique strengths of the Marubeni Group to provide exceptional business support to our portfolio companies. Currently, we are involved in managing the iSigma Business Advancement Fund III Investment Limited Partnership (31.8 billion JPY), the iSigma Business Advancement Fund IV Investment Limited Partnership (currently fundraising), and the Advantage Partners Asia Fund, L.P (380mil USD).
We are leveraging our expertise in the domestic real estate development business to expand our global presence. Our focus is on developing condominiums in China, ASEAN countries, and India, where the middle-income class is expanding rapidly and demand for housing is high.
In addition, we provide comprehensive one-stop asset management services related to U.S. real estate investment for Japanese investors. Our services cover all aspects of the investment process, including introducing real estate investment properties, providing acquisition advice, post-investment general asset management, and accounting and tax support in both Japan and the U.S. during the investment period. We also offer proposals and execution of sales for properties, ensuring a seamless investment experience from start to finish.
We are committed to delivering exceptional real estate investment solutions to our clients, whether it be through our global condominium development business or our one-stop asset management services in the U.S. Join us and experience the unparalleled support and expertise that only Marubeni can offer.
