Global limited partners in search of the next wave of growth are evaluating their emerging market exposure and increasingly seeking investment opportunities in less-penetrated markets. EMPEA's latest survey of institutional investors reveals that Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America (excluding Brazil) are poised to see the greatest increase in new private equity commitments across the emerging markets over the next two years, edging out Brazil, China and India as the most attractive destinations for dealmaking.
EMPEA’s 8th Annual Global Limited Partners Survey collected the views of 106 LPs from 28 countries around the world to better understand their changing attitudes toward private equity investing in emerging markets. This study provides EMPEA Members and the broader industry with a greater understanding of how LPs view the asset class, how their attitudes have changed over time, what their plans are for investment and what factors will shape the future of private equity investment in emerging markets.
In the current economic environment, competition for capital is fierce and GPs must increasingly look for new funding sources to complement their traditional investor base. This report takes another step toward providing a greater understanding of the pools of capital outside of North America and Western Europe that may potentially be available for EM PE investment.
Emerging markets will capture an even greater share of investor allocations to private equity, as LPs aggressively seek exposure to high growth markets, according to the 2011 EMPEA/Coller Capital Emerging Markets Private Equity Survey.
Institutional investors increasingly believe that emerging markets are attractive for private equity investment, both on a standalone basis and relative to more developed markets, according to the 2010 EMPEA/Coller Capital Emerging Markets Private Equity Survey.
