From Concept Ideas to Business Success

SL Palladio International focuses on businesses that will benefit from growing discretionary consumption, particularly in the Chinese market, across select buckets of lifestyle consumption. Specifically, the core business sectors are Fashion and F&B, more broadly those which can be grouped under ‘the big umbrella’ of lifestyle as their products and services ultimately define the specific customer’s lifestyle.

We follow the triple-a strategy
for our business

To benefit from demographic and current consumer trends in China, whilst achieving sustainable operating margins, we focus on companies that show a clear brand identity and that cater to one of the following categories:



Brands that offer differentiated and innovative codes such as products, packaging, brand history and values.


Brands with which customers are willing to be associated for the value and the emotions they carry, which fit deep aspirations of modern consumption trends.


Brands that offer superior value for money in their categories, with a premium to conventional offerings, but affordable to mass market consumers.

We seek to collaborate with early or high-grow stage companies that are gaining strong traction in their respective fields and are possibly initiating international expansion.We primarily consider the following forms of collaboration:
