Management
Philosophy

3C

IMM Private Equity’s core team came together almost 20 years ago during the early period of the Korean private equity industry.

The stability of our team and our continuous drive to become better at our profession is rooted in our Management Philosophy which can be summarized into the 3Cs.

First is “Confidence”. We seek to have confidence in our team members. We also want our investors have confidence that everyone at IMM Private Equity will strive to make prudent investment decisions.

Second is “Communication”. We strongly believe communication helps foster stronger teamwork which can, in turn, lead to the most vetted investment and operational decisions.

Third is “Challenge”. Being based in Korea, where the market is dynamic and active, we continuously challenge ourselves to expand our knowledge, experience and insights.

We hope this Management Philosophy will enable IMM Private Equity to serve our investors and lead our portfolio companies for many years to come.

Thank you.

I.J. Song, Founder & CEO
