Emerging Managers Barometer

It seems a while since the onset of Covid-19
changed our outlooks for the foreseeable future, but earlier this year the BVCA wanted to gain a better understanding of what investors are looking for when it comes to backing the new generation of private equity and venture capital fund managers.

Between January and February 2020, BVCA surveyed more than 40 global institutional investors and family offices to garner their views, from how they define what an emerging manager is, to the attractions and challenges of investing. They also discussed the findings with a number of fund managers who have themselves been through the growing pains of fundraising and whose thoughts are shared within the report.

Emerging managers are the lifeblood of our industry, and will continue to be so as we navigate and emerge from these difficult times. Therefore it remains useful to publish the results, although clearly they should be looked at through the lens of life before the pandemic impacted our lives in 2020. Many of the findings will remain useful to LPs and GPs alike.
