PE funds active in Asia [#permalink] New post 06 Mar 2007, 00:57
Is there any list of PE funds active in Asia? Most of these funds have some Asian presence.

Going forward, I believe that the employment in PE would probably be in Asia...

almost all of these groups have actibity in Asia. However, that dosent mean that the top-dawgs are in asia. Most of the upper management is in US (NYC for the most part) and they have deals going on everywhere.

So I still think US is the place to join them and then work on deals in Asia, Latin America, wherever.

And I was just reading about price/earnings... to think I thought you were talking about relative multiples, but PE stood for Private Equity in this case. Ha, ha! :)

10. Thomas H. Lee
Recent buyout fundraising: $7 billion

Description: Founder Tom Lee started his firm in 1974 with $150,000 - part inheritance, part loan from his brother. Lee moved to New York and left his Boston firm in 2005. Current senior partners Scott Sperling, Anthony DiNovi, and Scott Schoen continue to use his name. Lately Thomas H. Lee (the firm, not the man) has been hunting big game. Together with Bain Capital Partners and the Carlyle Group, Lee acquired Dunkin' Brands from Pernod Ricard for $2.4 billion in cash in March 2006. Again with Bain, Lee bid for Clear Channel Communications last fall. The price: $26.7 billion. With their most recent fund projected to close another $2 billion, expect to see Sperling, DiNovi, and Schoen continue to shake up the consumer, media, and business services sectors.

Boldface advisors: In October 2006 the firm hired media veteran Richard Bressler to lead its Strategic Resources Group. Bressler previously held positions at Viacom and was chairman and CEO of Time Warner Digital Media.

Fun fact: Some 30 out of 38 investment professionals are Harvard Business School alumni.

Even in the London offices, most people are from H/S/W - Harvard mostly, followed by Stan.

I know everyone is running to grab a stake in India currently, every big PE player wants a stake in Asia, I forsee them playing key roles even in Indonesia, Thailand Vietnam, and Korea...the biggest issues are the politics...so any country you see inviting money, you would be guess correctly to think someone is trying something

I must warn you though, read the recent economist and see the amount of shit PE guys are getting in Europe, do some research on the markets, if shit hits the fan, these guys are the Barbarians, when everything is fine and dandy, they are the miracle workers...it is all very fickle...think long term not short term.
