How to access Private Equity Funds

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 04, 2007 ) Select Asset Management (SELECT) and Private Equity FundsSelect Asset Management have partnered with Barwon Investment Partners to manage the Select Private Equity Portfolio which uses a multi-manager approach to invest in a range of listed and unlisted Australian and global private equity funds investments.Private Equity FundsPrivate equity funds have become particularly topical in recent years, with private equity funds making strong returns from high-profile investments and becoming increasingly active in large, listed companies. It has historically been difficult for individual and smaller investors to gain direct exposure to the returns that private equity funds generate because of the nature of private equity: it is illiquid and requires large amounts of patient capital. The structures employed by private equity fund managers have typically favoured large institutional investors, like superannuation funds.Unlisted Private Equity fundsUnlisted private equity funds come into existence when a group of investors agrees to commit an amount of capital to a private equity fund manager over a certain period of time. Capital is drawn down for investment as opportunities are identified and a decision made to invest. The Private Equity fund is closed-ended, with capital to be returned to investors either during the life of the private equity fund, as investments are realised, or at the end of the private equity fund’s life. The life of a private equity fund depends on the rate of investment, which in turn depends on the level of economic activity, but is generally from 5-10 years. Typically, unlisted private equity funds are required to invest committed capital once and return an investors’ equity when an investment is realised (this is referred to as a single use of capital requirement). Participation in unlisted private equity funds is normally restricted to large institutional investors because of the scale and liquidity necessary, and because the timing of fund raising and draw downs of capital is unpredictable.Historically, unlisted private equity funds have attracted most of the capital flowing into private equity. There is, however, a growing universe of global listed private equity funds.Global Listed Private Equity fundsGlobal Listed Private Equity funds includes companies:- whose securities are listed on recognised global stock exchanges; and - whose primary business involves investment in unlisted companies and/or the management of funds that invest in such companies. A global listed private equity fund has the same raison d’etre as an unlisted private equity fund. The major difference is structural - a global listed private equity fund is evergreen while an unlisted private equity fund has a finite life, with all capital to be distributed to investors after a certain time.
