We have written recently about the private equity asset-allocation ‘map of the world’. An interesting case is Israel – a country half the size of Switzerland, located in the Middle East, that consistently attracts meaningful amounts of international capital.
This may suggest that where a country happens to be located matters less to investors than things like culture, the rule of law and the presence of supportive entrepreneurial ecosystems. Or looked at another way, such a familiar investment environment conveniently nestled in the ‘Middle East & Africa’ grouping provides a comforting way of achieving geographic diversification.
This all raises important questions about its relative performance, risk and diversification benefits, which we explore in this latest edition of the Frontline.
