VIDEO: Jean Eric Salata on LP preferences

In a video interview on the sidelines of last week's PEI Asia Forum in Hong Kong, the founding partner of Baring Private Equity Asia notes trends he observed during his firm's recent $2.5bn fundraise.

Limited parnters are not just interested in the investment thesis and track record of a firm but also increasingly in how general partnerships and their business processes are structured, according to Jean Eric Salata, founding partner and chief executive of Baring Private Equity Asia. He was speaking to PE Asia in Hong Kong on the sidelines of the PEI Asia Forum, where he also accepted his PEA Leader of the Year award [click here for detailed awards coverage].

Hot off the fundraising trail – BPEA closed its Fund V on its $2.5 billion hard-cap, turning away more than $1 billion in demand – Salata was asked how this most recent fundraise might have differed from BPEA's past experiences.
