Jennifer Buckley

Founder and Managing Director


I founded Sweef Capital as an independent firm in mid 2021, having led the Asia and women’s economic empowerment investment programs for Small Enterprise Assistance Fund (SEAF) since 2018. We saw a unique opportunity to position an investment firm to respond to a major shift that recognises the power of women taking charge of their futures, which can unlock significant new value.

Leading the investment team, I draw on two decades in private equity leadership experience focused on growing mid-sized businesses across Europe and Asia, including with GE Capital, Private Advisors and Goldman Sachs and the experience gained as Senior Managing Director at SEAF. Leading the SEAF Women Opportunity Fund (SWOF), I also spearheaded the development of benchmarks to make the trends in diversity and inclusion more accessible to institutional markets which provided a great foundation for the new firm. We were thrilled to see this recognised in the 2020 Private Equity International Awards which rated our Southeast Asia women’s economic empowerment fund design among the Top 30 innovations in ESG/Impact.

I have a Masters in Law from University of Canterbury and Masters in International Accounting & Finance from the London School of Economics.
