Resource description

Looking at the numbers, it’s apparent that Asia’s private equity star is shining bright. Assets under management increased ninefold during the last 15 years to about $283 billion in 2009 – 60 per cent of that growth came in the last five years alone.

But for all its healthy growth, only one third of global limited partnerships (LP) have allocations to Asia, including developed markets like Japan, South Korea and Australia and developing economies like China and India, according to Preqin (a research firm focusing on alternative investments). Also, the region’s assets under management have maintained a fairly steady percentage of around 10 per cent of the global private equity industry’s assets.
