Striders Global Investment (SGI), a fully owned subsidiary of Striders Corporation – a Tokyo Stock Exchange Listed Company, has announced a strategic investment in AME Healthcare, a prominent dental healthcare group headquartered in Singapore and a part of ACP Asset Management (ACP). 

This investment marks a significant milestone in both companies’ endeavours to revolutionise the dental healthcare industry across Asia via the AME Healthcare chain of dental clinics branded as My Dentist.

With its unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence, SGI has identified AME Healthcare as a key player in the rapidly evolving landscape of dental healthcare services. This strategic investment underscores Striders’ confidence in AME Healthcare’s vision, expertise, and potential for transformative growth as well as the contribution towards the Goal 3 (Good Health & Wellbeing) of Sustainable Development Goals.

Access to high-quality dental care services at affordable prices has always been a problem in developing Asian countries. AME Healthcare, known for its cutting-edge technologies and patient-centric approach, operates a network of state-of-the-art dental clinics offering a comprehensive range of services, including preventive care, cosmetic dentistry, and specialised treatments at affordable prices, to cater to this huge untapped market opportunity. The infusion of capital from SGI will empower AME Healthcare to expand its reach in Sri Lanka and Maldives to new markets in South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, enhance service offerings, and pursue strategic partnerships to further elevate the standard of dental care delivery.

“We are thrilled to welcome Striders Global Investment as a strategic partner in our journey to redefine dental healthcare in Asia,” said AME Healthcare CEO Hasika Jayasooriya. “This investment not only validates our commitment to delivering exceptional patient outcomes but also propels us towards our vision of becoming the premier destination for comprehensive dental care.”

We are glad to have executed the first investment as a part of the MOU signed between our company and ACP and look forward to strengthen this partnership.”

Striders Global Investment Director Nelaka Haturusinha said: “The investment into AME Healthcare continues to show our commitment to support companies with solutions to deep social issues, with dental wellbeing being a largely overlooked problem in developing Asia.” 

The partnership between SGI and AME Healthcare exemplifies a shared commitment to excellence, innovation, and transformative impact. Together, the two entities are poised to advance the standards of dental care delivery, empower patients, and shape the future of healthcare across Asia.
