While booming Asia has become synonymous of investment opportunities, much remains to be understood about how investors tap into Asia-Pacific (APAC) private markets. This report explores how private equity (PE) investors in APAC and abroad invest in APAC-focused PE funds. It shows that the APAC PE market is dominated by investors domiciled within APAC, with most investments originating from investors in North Asia. Investors based within APAC and based outside of APAC show different investment styles, leading to different return profiles, whereby APAC-based investors seem to have slightly outperformed non-APAC based investors.
The research report has been co-authored by Prof. Dr. Stefan Morkoetter, Dr. Tobias Schori and Maria Oliveira. It is a research initiative of the institute’s competence center on Wealth Management exploring private market investments in Asia.
