Private equity in Russia and Central Europe outperforms rest of world

0 18 August 2014

For the last 10 years profits from private investments in Russia and Central Europe have been higher than anywhere else (based on the amount of profit compared to the amount of investment).

This is according to data from Cambridge Associates and the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA). The Wall Street Journal included this fact in its list of “5 things you need to know about emerging markets private equity”.

Private equity in Russia and Central Europe gave returns of 16.45% for the last 10 years. In America the figure for venture capital is 9.69%, with other private equity giving returns of 13.97%. In second place was Eastern Europe with 15.7%.

The returns for Asia, Africa and Latin America were 12.75%, 12% and 11.74% respectively.

EMPEA — Global Limited Partners Survey:

Total volume of private capital invested in Central Europe and the CIS, however, still remains amongst the lowest in the world:

It is important to recognise that the EMPEA and Cambridge Associates only aggregate data from their own members, meaning that these figures are far from showing the whole picture.
