PEI’s Research and Analytics team has published its LP 50
ranking which revealed the 50 investors that committed and invested the most
capital into private equity between 1 March 2010 and 28 February 2015.
In 2015, the top ten institutional investors made
investments to private equity – including primary funds - totalling $160.16
billion, a 20 percent increase on the amount committed by the top ten LPs in the
2014 LP 50. In total, $133.58 billion was invested in funds and direct
investments between 1 March 2009 and 28 February 2014.
The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board topped the list in
2015 with $28.09 billion of capital committed over the time period. Apollo
Investment Fund VIII was the largest mandate confirmed by the pension fund - an
investment of just under $1 billion was made to the North American-focused
buyout vehicle in June 2013. CPPIB also topped the ranking in 2014, with an
aggregate amount invested and committed of $26.21 billion.
AlpInvest Partners and Hamilton Lane came in second and
third place this year, investing $19.68 billion and $17.8 billion respectively.
Both fund of funds managers committed and invested more capital than in last
year’s ranking but retained their positions in the LP 50.
