Coller Capital’s 30th Global Private Equity Barometer, Summer 2019

Two thirds of investors will support a GP decision to sell a stake in its management company if it is to facilitate generational change at the business or to strengthen the resources the manager focuses on its market, according to the 30th edition of Coller Capital’s Global Private Equity Barometer. By contrast, only a third of LPs think it appropriate for a manager to sell interests in its management company in order to fund GP commitments or launch new products.

  • Investors are increasingly willing to back new product launches from their current GPs
  • Misalignment and a shortage of information are the biggest concerns for LPs in GP-led secondaries
  • A lack of definitional clarity around the term ‘ESG’ is becoming problematic for investors
  • Improving their organisation’s employee diversity is a top priority for LPs and GPs alike
