The Australasian alternative assets industry is evolving and this is creating a new set of challenges for participants. Funds seeking new commitments typically require the lion share to be from offshore, the deal environment is competitive and in general market activity has slowed reflecting the regions overall macro-economic story. However, a handful of funds have had successful fundraises and it is clear that the GPs that measure up when benchmarked on a global stage will continue to drive the domestic industry forward.
This is an intriguing time as Australasian PE matures. Succession planning strategies, sourcing offshore commitments, creating a team that can deliver real operational value, customising the PE model and finding attractive investment and exit opportunities in a slow market are all key topics for debate.
