Operational Value Add: The Next Stage in Asian Private Equity

StepStone Group have kindly shared a new piece of research with us on the development of operational value creation in Asia. Asian fund managers have been catching up on adding operational expertise to their teams, as evidenced by the results of the PEI-conducted AlixPartners’ Private Equity Value Creation in Asia-Pacific Survey ($).

However, StepStone’s report states “as growth across Asia moderates, and particularly in China, it has become harder to achieve high returns in the region by simply being in the market. As a result, many general partners are leveraging teams with specialized functional or industry expertise to drive incremental returns among portfolio companies.[StepStone terms this effort Operational Value Add (“OVA”).]
