The outlook for the Australasian market is positive as a record number of IPO exits have provided strong returns for investors and has proven that PE can outperform listed equities and compete with global divestment figures. Fundraising in terms of dollar value has been high but the number of PE funds successfully raising new commitments has declined as investors flock to the best in class.
This is an intriguing time for Australasian PE as the industry continues to mature. GPs must evolve, diversify and display skills to drive value in a low-growth environment and justify future commitments when competing on a global state by achieving world-class results from current deals and exits.

The hopes for a flourishing PE market amid the euphoria of 2012 has not yet been realised but the potential is still present and now may well be the time for the country to take off in its own right and increase its reputation as THE hot market in Southeast Asia.
