Vantage Private Equity Growth 5



Vantage Private Equity Growth 5 (VPEG5) is a Private Equity Fund of Funds established to provide investors with access to the returns generated by the top performing Later Expansion and Buyout, Private Equity Funds in Australia.

VPEG5 is also unconditionally registered with Innovation Australia, as a complying investment for the Significant Investor Visa (SIV), focused on investing in the lowest risk segment of a SIV applicants mandatory VCPE investment, Growth Private Equity.

Private Equity as an asset class has attracted a growing amount of interest from investors over recent years as it continues to outperform traditional asset classes. VPEG5 offers investors the opportunity to share in the strong returns of this asset class, while substantially removing the hurdles that have traditionally limited investor access to it.

Through its unique structure, focussed investment strategy and guidelines, systematic and rigorous fund manager selection criteria and its arrangements with highly experienced Private Equity investment management and advisory groups, the Investment Manager is confident of VPEG5, developing a highly diversified portfolio of underlying, profitable, private company investments and ultimately delivering superior absolute returns to Investors.
