Emerging Markets Fundraising and Investments Down in Q1: Slideshow


Private equity fundraising and investing in the emerging markets were both down in the first quarter of 2012, according to recent figures from the Emerging Private Equity Association (EMPEA). Thirty funds raised US$7.8 billion for the quarter to 31 March 2012, compared to 46 funds that raised US$9.9 billion in the first quarter of 2011. In terms of investments, US$4.8 billion was invested in 198 deals during the period, compared to US$8.5 billion in 217 deals completed for the first quarter of last year.

By region, China accounted for the lion’s share of fundraising for the period raising $125 million, followed by India with $400 million and Brazil with $125 million. In terms of amount invested, China again led taking $1,814 million, followed by India with $1,051 million, Brazil with $682 million and Russia with $50 million.

Looking at performance of Asia-focused funds within CalPERS’ private equity portfolio top performers for the 30 September 2011 period include the 2008 vintage Asia Alternatives Capital Partners II which posted an IRR of 32.2% with a 1.5x multiple. Newbridge Asia III, with a more mature vintage of 2003 posted an IRR of 30.8% and investment multiple of 4.4x. Newbridge is part of the Texas Pacific Group fund family. CalPERS’ invesment in 57 Stars Global Opportunities Fund 2 also holds an impressive performer in Chinese venture fund GSR Ventures III which posted an IRR of 88.7% and 2.3 multiple for the period.

This week’s slideshow takes a look the performance of ten of the funds in global emerging markets investor EMAlternatives’ portfolio for the same period. CalPERS has committed $100 million to that fund manager which has a 2007 vintage and has so far generated an IRR of -0.3% and investment multiple of 1x. Vintages within EMAlternatives’ portfolio are still relatively young with the most mature at 2007. The top five performers to date are from 2008 funds, but time will tell as to how these emerging markets funds progress. As of 31 September 2011, Brazil was a top performer for the fund manager and last year saw the LP commit some $5 million to Brazilian fund Vinci Capital Partners II.
