Abstract

The private equity industry has been widely examined in the U.S., and in Europe as well. But in Asia, unexplored despite the rapid growth of Asian capital markets in recent years. Even during the economic downturn of 1997, the industry in Asia added approximately $8.3 billion in capital.

Situational and cultural factors in Asia have created a private equity industry with its own unique characteristics.
