January 20, 2020

LGT Capital Partners is pleased to announce the final close of Crown Asia-Pacific Private Equity IV plc (CAPE IV), its fourth private equity investment program investing in the Asia-Pacific region, at the hard cap of USD 1 billion. The program’s investor base consists of more than 50 institutions, including pension funds, insurance companies and university endowments in Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia and the Middle East.

Doug Coulter, Hong Kong based Partner at LGT Capital Partners, comments: “Having been present in the Asia-Pacific region since 1998, we have seen increasing interest from institutional investors in the region. In parallel, the opportunity set of investments has also grown substantially. With CAPE IV, investors gain exposure to a diversified, well balanced portfolio of some of the best private companies in the Asia-Pacific region, acquired via our primary, secondary and co-investment businesses."  

Ivan Vercoutere, Managing Partner at LGT Capital Partners, adds: “With CAPE IV, we are making investments that are benefiting from the consumption upgrade stories in both China and India, while also offering investors balanced exposure to some of the leading small- and mid-market private equity firms across the entire region. Our longstanding relationships with these managers provides us with the quality and quantity of deal flow

required to remain highly selective in our private equity co-investments, as Asia becomes an increasingly attractive and important market for Private Equity.”
