SUMMARY OF FINDINGS
The value of funds committed to VC&LSPE investment vehicles increased during 2011-12. As at 30 June 2012, investors had $17,212m committed to investment vehicles, a rise of 10% on the $15,631m committed as at 30 June 2011. Most of the committed funds were sourced domestically, with 87% of commitments from Australian investors (residents) down from 91% as at 30 June 2011. The value of funds committed by non-residents rose $805m (56%). Resident pension funds contributed $9,330m to total committed capital (54% of total funds committed).
All investors had $12,407m of committed funds drawn down as at 30 June 2012, which was an increase on the $12,088m (2.6%) of committed funds drawn down as at 30 June 2011.
As at 30 June 2012, $4,805m of committed funds were yet to be called on, up 36% on the undrawn commitments as at 30 June 2011. The $4,805m of undrawn commitments can be classified by preferred stage of investment, with only $541m undrawn by funds which prefer to invest at the earlier stage.
