What Our Clients Say

“I believe China and Israel will have a good business communication through the bridge that Yafo Capital built for us. I want to thank Yafo Capital for their contribution in promoting China-Israel investment.”
Rami Levy
President of Rami Levy.
“I am truly impressed by the organization of the Conference and the attention to detail. From the Israeli group as well as the Yafo Capital team, everyone was so helpful, caring and professional. I have attended many Conferences and I truly do not remember the level of support and guidance that was given to me here.”
Alan Schwebel
President & CEO of Bioview
"I participated in many conferences in my life, but it was the most impressive of all, and not just because of the number of investors, but rather the quality of investors. We met at least 10 Chinese funds, some of them very large. Throughout the event was a long line of Chinese investors who were waiting to talk to us, some investors and some potential clients that I have been trying to get in contact with for years.”
Yoel Gat
CEO of SatixFy
