Since establishment in 2004, Vantage has developed and managed a Fund of Funds investment strategy focused exclusively on small to mid-market Growth Private Equity. This segment of Private Equity focuses on investments into profitable businesses with proven products and services.

These businesses typically have a strong market position and generate strong cash flows allowing Vantage’s funds to generate strong consistent returns to investors, while significantly reducing the risk of a loss within the portfolio.

A key factor in Vantage’s investment strategy is risk minimization. This is obtained by diversification of underlying investments across a range of parameters including; fund manager, geographic region and industry sector.

VPEG5 will develop a diversified portfolio of underlying investments similar to Vantage’s existing Private Equity funds, which have an emphasis on growth industry sectors including the Healthcare, Consumer, Industrials, Information Technology and Agricultural Products sectors.

Why Invest

Consistently High Returning Asset Class

Private Equity has consistently outperformed most traditional asset classes. Top-tier Private Equity managers have a track record of delivering superior long-term returns compared with public equities markets, with the added benefit of these returns being achieved with lower volatility.

Increased Portfolio Efficiency

Due to Private Equity’s relatively low correlation with traditional asset classes and superior long-term performance, adding Private Equity to a portfolio of listed stocks and bonds improves the efficiency of that portfolio allowing higher targeted returns for the same level of calculated risk.

Superior Targeted Returns

VPEG5 is targeting a net return of 20% p.a. over a four to six year investment timeframe.

Returns Distributed as Underlying Investments Exited

As investment returns are received by the Fund, they will be distributed to investors within 30 days of receipt by the Fund.

Access ‘Progressive Call’ Investment

Vantage have offered all AGP investors the ability to invest progressively from as little as $100,000, a feature typically reserved for applications over $1m. When an investor applies to the fund, only 5% of the Committed investment is required to be paid on Application, with the remainder paid across the life of the Fund as underlying investments are made.

A Well Diversified Private Equity Investment

VPEG5’s clearly defined Investment Guidelines provide a high level of diversification by strategically allocating its Private Equity Commitments and Investments across fund managers, financing stages, vintage years, industry sectors and geographic regions.

Investment Process and Comittee

Vantage Asset Management systematically follows an underlying fund selection and investment process. For each fund, Vantage evaluates a considerable number of investment opportunities that ultimately result in investments into a limited number of private equity funds and direct co-investments. The Investment Committee ensures consistency of the investment process and adherence to the investment guidelines.
