AP7 has also committed capital to two of HarbourVest’s private equity funds of funds: HarbourVest International Private Equity Partners, which invests predominantly in European private equity funds; and HarbourVest Partners, which mainly invests in US private equity funds. The committed capital will be invested over a period of four to six years.
Says AP7 CEO, Peter Norman: “We have allocated 4% of the capital of premium savings fund (PSF), and 8% of the premium choice fund to private equity because we strongly believe that this will generate additional capital growth on for our savers.”
AP7’s $2bn system comprises the premium savings fund.
