The Internationalization of Alternative Funds
Global private capital has followed a steady growth trajectory in recent years and has now reached record levels. At the same time, regional distribution of this AUM has shifted considerably. Whereas North America had historically accounted for the majority of private capital investments globally, Asia, Europe and the rest of the world have steadily grown their share over the last decade and a half. Acknowledging these market dynamics, private equity general partners are increasingly looking internationally to both source deals and raise capital from limited partners as a means of growth and achieving attractive returns. Maples Fund Services’ Head of Private Equity Solutions, Robert Wolfe explores this shift toward sourcing investments and raising capital overseas, as well as what is necessary from an infrastructure perspective to support this trend toward internationalization.
