VPEG2 has been tailored for investment by sophisticated investors, SMSF’s, family offices and small to mid-sized institutions. An investment in VPEG2 suits a range of investors due to the following reasons;
Superior Targeted Returns
VPEG2 is targeting a pre tax post fees return of 20% per annum over the medium to long term.
Access to Previously Inaccessible Funds
Within two years of the Final Closing Date VPEG2 intends to have made investment commitments in up to eight Private Equity funds (both new & existing) managed by top performing Australian Private Equity fund managers, that are generally inaccessible to private Investors.
Focused Investment Strategy
VPEG2 will only invest in funds targeting small to mid market sized investments ($50m to $500m enterprise value at investment) at the Buyout and Later Expansion financing stages of Private Equity, that have consistently delivered strong returns to investors.
Tax Effective Fund Structure
VPEG2 is comprised of two Australian unit Trusts catering for two types of investors. This structure also offers tax advantages to Investors in that all gains and income distributed by each Trust will be taxed in the hands of the Investor. Additionally certain Investors may benefit from the discount capital gains tax concessions that may be available on capital distributions from each Trust. Future capital gains could also offset other capital losses present within an investor’s existing portfolio or super fund.
A Well Diversified Private Equity Investment
VPEG2′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, industry sectors and geographic regions.
Returns Distributed as Underlying Investments Exited
As returns are realised by the Fund they will be distributed to Investors within 30 days of receipt, with any net income earned by the Fund during each financial year fully distributed to Investors each year.
Strong and Experienced Management and Investment Committee
VPEG2′s highly qualified and experienced investment management team is complemented by an Investment, Audit & Risk Committee consisting of a majority of independent members with substantial business, finance and Private Equity investment expertise.
