In 2005, the partners moved to South East Asia to follow some investment opportunities. They were mainly involved in the restructuration of textile factories (in Laos, Thailand and Madagascar) and the creation of a new luxury leather production unit in Thailand. After this, the partners started to receive requests from investors seeking advice and management for their developments in the region. The hospitality business was studied in detail and the team started consultancy work based on financial, artistic, and engineering expertise.
