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.

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.
