    Where does Asian private equity & venture capital sit within the global industry, and what are its prospects?Looked at on most metrics, Asia accounts for approximately 15% of the global private equity & venture capital industry. Aggregate capital raised for Asia-Pacific-focused private capital funds over the period 2007-2016 accounted for 14% of the global total, although its share has fluctuated over this period (see page 5). Asia rebounded more quickly than North America and Europe after the Global Financial Crisis, reaching 23% of global capital raised in 2011, but more recently North America and Europe have regained their pre-2008 levels, while Asia has decreased from its 2014 peak in absolute terms.

    Dig beneath the surface, and there are some major evolving trends. The returns that investors have earned on Asia-focused private equity & venture capital funds have been very similar to those from North America- and Europe-focused funds – neither significantly better, nor significantly worse (see page 12). Until now, the big difference has been cash flows: starting in 2011 in North America and in 2013 in Europe, investors began to see significant positive net cash flows from their private equity & venture capital investments. The criticism levelled at Asia-focused funds has always been: “Yes, the IRRs are OK, but when do we get our money back?” Starting in 2016, that question now appears to be answered: Asia-focused funds are now delivering strong positive net cash flows back to their LPs. If this continues, then the implications for the industry in Asia will be profound: the one significant factor holding some LPs back from committing to Asia-focused funds will have been removed, and significant growth and success are likely to lie ahead.

    The potential for growth in Asia can already be seen in the tremendous expansion in venture capital deal activity over the period 2013-2017 (see page 18). Greater China now rivals the US as a hub of venture capital activity and deal flow has never been stronger. Nor is the venture capital growth story limited to Greater China: Northeast Asia, ASEAN and South Asia are all seeing rapid growth and development in their venture capital industries (see pages 19-22).

    The bottom line is that the outlook for growth in Asian private equity & venture capital has rarely looked stronger: continued economic growth, favourable demographics, a burgeoning middle class and a maturing industry delivering positive net cash flows to its investors all point to major long-term growth.

    Preqin is therefore delighted to present our 2017 report on Asian Private Equity & Venture Capital; we hope you will find it to be a useful pointer to the growing opportunities for investors and fund managers alike. The report forms a small part of Preqin’s expanding commitment to the region: starting with our regional hub in Singapore in 2010, Hong Kong and Manila were added in 2016, and our new China research centre opens in Guangzhou in October 2017. Our growing research, sales and customer service teams are committed to enhancing the quality of data and level of service that we offer our customers in the region – and indeed to our global customers who also rely on the best data in Asia.

    We thank our customers for your support, and will continue to develop the service to meet your requirements.

    Happy investing,

    OPTIMISM AND OPPORTUNITIES SEEN IN ASIA-PACIFIC

    - Alexandre Schmitz, Capstone Partners

    CURRENT STATE OF THE PRIVATE MARKET INDUSTRY IN ASIA-PACIFICAs illustrated by Fig. 1, funds focused on the Asia-Pacific region represent 14% of the $5.9tn raised over the last decade. Across this time period, the majority of the Asia-Pacific-focused funds are fairly evenly split between buyout, growth, venture capital and real estate strategies.

    Following the GFC, the amount of capital raised for closed-end funds focused on the Asia-Pacific region rebounded more quickly than for funds focused on the West. At the end of 2011, 23% of the money raised globally was dedicated to investment in the region and, as seen in Fig. 2, it was the second largest destination for deploying money, after North America and before Europe. Over the last two years, North America and Europe have recovered to their pre-2008 levels while the Asia-Pacific region has decreased from its 2014 peak in absolute terms. The most recent figures show that the amount raised during the last 12 months by funds focused on Asia-Pacific ($70bn at the end of June 2017) was 24% below the peak at the end of 2014 ($93bn), and is now less than 10% of the amount raised globally.

    The two main drivers of this negative trend are the decreasing amount of capital raised by Japan-based managers and the limited number of international managers raising money to be deployed in the Asia-Pacific region since the end of 2014. Over the last few months, more than 10 Japanese buyout funds have been closed in a row. Furthermore, the recent close of KKR Asia III at $9.3bn and the anticipated raises of several other global private equity houses imply a potential reversal of this decline.

    ASIA-PACIFIC FUND PERFORMANCE COMPARED TO OTHER REGIONSHistorically, funds dedicated to the Asia-Pacific region have performed

    well compared to their Western peers. This is particularly the case for venture capital funds in China and buyout funds in Australia which generated the best performance at a global level in their respective segments. For the region as a whole, the return premium to invest

    in private rather than listed markets has been higher in Asia-Pacific than in North America or Europe.

    Nevertheless, international investors remain cautious with their allocations for investment outside the West. The two

    PREQIN SPECIAL REPORT: ASIAN PRIVATE EQUITY & VENTURE CAPITAL

    main issues for global investors active in the region are a greater divergence between the top quartile and poor performers, and a relatively low realization rate of the value created. Indeed, too many funds, which have reached the end of their investment period, are characterized by DPI below 50%, particularly the ones exposed to China and India.

    While it seems that there is no material premium to investing in Asia rather than in the West, it is important to note that the nature of the performance differs compared to the West. In Europe, over 80% of the funds dedicated to private equity investment have been raised for leverage buyouts, while the bulk of the funds focused on the emerging Asia region target venture capital or growth capital investments. Moreover, the few managers utilizing a control strategy typically only rely on moderate financial engineering. As a result, in addition to the multiple expansion, most of the value created is driven by growth rather than financial leverage. Buying minority stakes in growing companies with the hope of a listing also implies longer than average holding periods. In China, for example, private equity managers have invested in more than 10,000 companies, while only about 250 IPOs are transacted on a yearly basis. Going forward, more trade sales and secondary transactions will be needed.

    APPETITE OF GLOBAL LPs FOR PRIVATE INVESTMENTS IN ASIA-PACIFICGiven the disparity of the performance between top-quartile and lower-quartile funds, manager selection is even more important in Asia than in North America and Europe. Therefore, investors continue to favour GPs that have demonstrated

    their ability to return capital and that have built a repeatable successful business model.

    A few years ago, pre-IPO strategies allowed managers to generate value without implementing operational changes in the portfolio companies. Today, operating management skills and an ability to negotiate satisfactory corporate governance (in particular regarding exit rights) are a must to convince investors to make a commitment. Alongside large pan-regional GPs that have imported best practices from the West, local managers that have developed a sector expertise should continue to attract LP interest.

    Overall, there will continue to be two different types of global investors in the region. The first type is the international investor that has set up operations in Asia and is committed to allocating to Asia as a diversification play. The second type is the “fly-in” investor that is only looking to invest in opportunities where they believe they can take advantage of the reasonable valuations and attractive growth prospects to achieve premium returns that will compensate them for currency and emerging markets risk. Circumstantial evidence would suggest that the quantity and interest levels of these international “fly-in” investors should continue to increase as attendance at the large Asia regional conferences has also increased over the last several years. As the market matures, we are likely to see continued strong support from local investors augmented by the “fly-in” investors becoming a larger percentage of the committed capital.

    BEST PRIVATE EQUITY OPPORTUNITIES IN ASIA-PACIFICOnly a few countries in Asia-Pacific can be characterized as having a mature private equity industry that is dominated by buyout funds, namely Australia, Japan and, to some extent, Korea. Due to limited competition for quality companies with an enterprise value below $200mn and a large ecosystem in that segment, Australia appears to offer the most attractive mid-market buyout funds on a global level. Compared to North America or Europe, over 95% of transactions are primary deals in Australia. Furthermore, compared to the Japanese market, Australia is characterized by sound macroeconomic growth prospects.

    In emerging Asia, secondary managers are expected to continue to deliver above-average performance when adjusted for risk. By nature, buying into a fund entering its harvesting period or into a company owned for several years by another private equity investor reduces the intrinsic risk of an investment. It also significantly reduces the expected holding period before a liquidity event is likely to occur.

    In addition, managers that have built a franchise and shown the ability to add value to companies in sectors such as technology, healthcare or education seem to be well placed to raise funds in the future. We also believe that the infrastructure and credit spaces will provide interesting investment opportunities. However, if the underlying markets are expected to grow significantly in the foreseeable future, the main issue in those two segments is the limited number of managers that have demonstrated a consistent track record.

    ASIAN PRIVATE EQUITY & VENTURE CAPITAL UNIVERSE

    The private equity & venture capital market of Asia is diverse and offers a wide selection of investment opportunities and potential income streams. The maturing Greater China region remains the hub of Asian activity – home to more investors and fund managers than any other Asian region, it represents 75% and 44% of the value of all venture capital and buyout deals respectively completed in Asia since 2010. Northeast Asia is also a significant investment destination within Asia, with Japan witnessing record buyout deal activity in 2016. Managers based in the ASEAN region have been launching steadily increasing numbers of private equity vehicles in recent years, while South Asian venture capital activity has been generally on the up, despite a dip in aggregate deal value in 2016.

    With these regions witnessing varying levels of private equity activity, Preqin’s 2017 Asian Private Equity & Venture Capital report will provide an overview of the fundraising and deal landscape across Asia, and identify the key players within the region.

    THE INVESTOR UNIVERSEPreqin’s Private Equity Online tracks 863 Asia-based institutional investors active in the asset class. As seen on page 4, China is home to the greatest number of LPs in

    Asia, followed by Japan and South Korea (Fig. 1).

    The make-up of Asia-based investors starkly contrasts that of the global industry. In the more developed markets of North America and Europe, foundations and pension funds account for the majority of LPs, whereas corporate investors, banks and insurance companies are the most numerous Asia-based investors (Fig. 2). Recent regulatory changes surrounding the investment activity of insurance companies has enabled these institutions to participate

    more directly in the industry, leading to insurance companies launching debut funds.

    ASIA-FOCUSED FUNDRAISINGAsia-focused private equity & venture capital fundraising has declined in recent years, with the aggregate capital secured by funds closed in 2016 down 26% from the $89bn raised in 2014 (Fig. 3). Despite this, larger funds have been entering the market: 37% of Asia-focused funds closed in 2017 so far have secured $250mn or more, up from 27% in 2016 and 21% in 2015 (Fig. 4). It is therefore unsurprising

    PREQIN SPECIAL REPORT: ASIAN PRIVATE EQUITY & VENTURE CAPITAL

    that the average size of Asia-focused private equity funds has increased. Driving this increase are two buyout funds that have closed so far in 2017 securing over $5bn each: KKR’s KKR Asian Fund III closed in June securing $9.3bn, focusing on management buyouts and growth equity investments in Asia, while Sfund’s Guoxin Fund I secured CNY 50bn to invest in the consumer discretionary sector.

    Following the closures of these two vehicles, the aggregate capital secured ($23bn) by Asia-focused buyout funds in 2017 YTD has almost reached the $24bn secured for the whole of 2014 (Fig. 5). However, the level of capital secured this year by venture capital and growth funds is significantly down from 2016.

    Venture capital funds account for the greatest number of Asia-focused funds currently seeking capital; however, with three vehicles targeting over CNY 100bn, growth funds represent the greatest share of aggregate capital targeted (Fig. 6).

    DEAL FLOW The Asian venture capital market has witnessed significant growth in recent years. This trend began in 2014 when aggregate deal value reached $35bn, more than treble the $11bn in 2013 (Fig. 7). This growth has continued and 2017 looks set to surpass the $67bn record set in 2016, having already hit $52bn as of August. Deals completed in Greater China account for the majority of Asian venture capital deal value and have been the driving force behind this trend; however, South Asia has seen a record $13bn in venture capital deals completed in 2017, as demand for Indian assets increases.

    Asian buyout deal activity, on the other hand, has slowed in recent years. At $34bn, the aggregate value of buyout deals in Asia in 2016 was 32% lower than in 2015 ($50bn). So far in 2017, Asian buyout deal value has reached $18bn, suggesting the full-year total is likely to be on a par with 2016.

    DRY POWDERThe amount of dry powder available to Asia-focused fund managers sits at a record $144bn as at December 2016, marking a 19% increase from 2015 and

    an 11% increase from the previous record high seen in December 2013 (Fig. 8). As liquid private equity investors seek to deploy distributed capital back into the industry, the level of readily available capital is impacting fund manager activity.Nearly half (48%) of all Asia-based fund managers surveyed by Preqin in June 2017 reported that it is has become more difficult to source attractive investment opportunities over the past year, and fund managers are keeping their powder dry in response to market conditions.

    Furthermore, over two-thirds (68%) of Asia-based fund manager respondents see asset prices as a key issue in the private equity market over the next 12 months, as investor demand and available capital continue to push up market valuations. However, despite this, fund managers are optimistic about investment opportunities in the coming year: 65% expect to deploy more capital in the market than they did in the previous 12 months.

    OUTLOOK The private equity fundraising environment has slowed in recent years, with the number of Asia-focused vehicles reaching a final close decreasing year on year since 2011. This being said, fund managers still see opportunity for investment in the region, and 2017 has seen record-size funds entering the market. Furthermore, there are currently four Asia-focused vehicles targeting over CNY 100bn, each of which would represent

    the largest ever Asia-focused private equity fund should their target be met.

    Asia-based investors and fund managers are concerned by the current exit environment and asset valuations, and see these issues as the greatest challenges facing the industry in the coming year. Low interest rates and economic growth concerns in China, Asia’s largest private equity market, has created volatility

    and uncertainty in the region. However, significant proportions of both investors and fund managers are planning to invest further in the asset class over the coming year as they look to access the differing opportunities and risk/return profiles available across this diverse continent.

    FUND MANAGER AND INVESTOR OUTLOOK

    In June 2017, Preqin interviewed 34 Asia-based private equity investors to measure their attitudes towards the asset class, investment plans in the coming year and concerns for the future. We also interviewed 28 Asia-based private equity & venture capital fund managers to find out their views on fundraising, deal flow and their planned future activity. The results revealed several key issues that investors and fund managers are facing in an increasingly competitive investment environment.

    While most managers and investors surveyed believe that it is neither harder or easier to find attractive investment opportunities compared with 12 months ago, significant proportions (48% and 40% respectively) are now finding it more difficult (Fig. 15). This may be the result of a competitive investment environment, with 73% of surveyed managers reporting an increase in the level of competition for investor capital compared to 12 months ago.

    CHALLENGES AND CONCERNSWith 68% of managers surveyed citing it as a key issue, asset pricing is the biggest concern for Asia-based fund managers in the coming year (Fig. 16). This represents a substantial shift in sentiment from one

    year ago, with just 22% of Asia-based fund managers surveyed in June 2016 citing asset pricing as the biggest challenge facing the industry. With value harder to find at the deal making stage, the exit environment appears more favourable: 56% of managers expect to exit more investments in the coming year than they did in the previous year.

    When looking at investors’ concerns for the year ahead, although a significantly smaller proportion (31%) cited valuations

    as a key issue, the exit environment appears to be the biggest concern, as cited by 46% of respondents. Notably, there is a substantial discrepancy in the proportion of investors that believe fees will be a key issue going forward, compared to managers. This may suggest that managers still have some way to go in listening to investors’ concerns over fund terms and conditions.

    Fund managers and investors also differ substantially in their expected capital

    PREQIN SPECIAL REPORT: ASIAN PRIVATE EQUITY & VENTURE CAPITAL

    commitments to the asset class over the next 12 months. The majority (65%) of Asia-based fund managers surveyed expect to commit more capital over the coming year, compared with 29% of investors, as seen in Fig. 17. This suggests that Asia-based fund managers are under pressure from their investors to put their current record levels of dry powder ($229bn) to work.

    GEOGRAPHIC PREFERENCESHalf of Asia-based investors we interviewed believe that North America currently presents the best investment opportunities in the asset class. Attitudes towards North American private equity among Asia-based investors have clearly improved, therefore, as the region was favoured by just 38% of investors surveyed this time last year. In contrast, appetite for Asian private equity exposure among Asia-based investors has decreased to 46% from 58% over the past year, suggesting a change in investor sentiment in favour of more established private equity & venture capital markets.

    ALTERNATIVE STRUCTURESAlternative methods of accessing the asset class will remain prominent in Asia as investors look for other ways to deploy sizeable amounts of new capital. This demand is largely being met by managers that use alternative structures as a way to differentiate themselves during the fundraising process, with the hope of forging lasting relationships with LPs. Forty-eight percent of Asia-based investors

    surveyed currently use co-investments to access the asset class, with 45% of managers expecting to offer more of these structures to investors in the next 12 months.

    OUTLOOKPerhaps due to the increase in competition while fundraising, as well as concerns over asset valuations, just 25% of Asia-based fund managers surveyed plan to launch a new private equity fund before the end of 2017. This marks a substantial decrease from the 77% of managers that planned to launch a fund before the end of the year at this point in 2016. However, with 338 private equity funds currently being raised by Asia-based managers, the fundraising market remains competitive.
