Vantage Private Equity Growth 2 (VPEG2) is a multi-manager Private Equity investment fund structured as twin Australian unit trusts (VPEG2A & VPEG2B). VPEG2 is focused on investing in professionally managed Private Equity funds that invest in businesses that are at a more mature stage of development, and in particular the Later Expansion and Buyout stages of Private Equity investment.
The Fund’s investment objective for its Investment Portfolio is to achieve attractive medium to longterm returns on Private Equity investments while keeping the volatility of the overall investment portfolio low.
