Video: LP Appetite in Asia

Posted by Muhammad Ibrahim Masudi

Speaking on the sidelines of the PEI Asia Forum in Hong Kong, Enrique Cuan, co-managing partner of placement firm Mercury Capital Advisors, says LPs aren’t yet as adventurous as one might be led to believe.

China’s private equity opportunities once again took centre stage at this year’s PEI Asia Forum in Hong Kong, though many speakers and delegates highlighted emerging Asian economies such as Indonesia and Vietnam as increasingly of interest.

But are investors ready to commit to these markets and other niche strategies?

Enrique Cuan, co-managing partner of Merrill Lynch spin-out Mercury Capital Advisors, told PE Asia that LPs are becoming more curious, but not yet making commitments that stray from core strategies and well known managers. Cuan was speaking on the sidelines of the conference, at which he also accepted Mercury’s award for placement agent of the year in Asia [click here for detailed awards coverage].
