Fundraising for Southeast Asia continues to rebound from its recent low point in 2016, with USD1.4 billion raised in 1H 2019. Venture capital (VC) has emerged as the most active strategy in the region: nine VC funds achieved a close in the first half of 2019, led by the USD175 million first close of Jungle Ventures’ fourth fund. Meanwhile, final closes for funds managed by regional veteran Southern Capital and newcomer Archipelago Capital Partners drove buyout fundraising in 1H 2019 to USD575 million—already the highest total since 2014. With relatively few private equity GPs actively pursuing buyouts in the middle market, Southeast Asia may present an attractive competitive landscape for firms able to raise capital.
