SAVCA and RisCura have released their joint Private Equity Performance Report, noting that the returns come in marginally below the JSE’s All-Share Index.

From their release:

‘The Private Equity Performance Report confirms that the local asset class continues to yield good returns for investors. Data indicates that investments into private equity funds delivered an annualised rate of return of 18.5%, net of fees, over the ten years to September 2014.

This latest performance is on par with the 18.6% recorded in the previous quarter, reflecting a steadying in the numbers as some of the gains experienced during the bull market of the early 2000s start to have less significance in the analysis period.
