About Capital Group

Private Markets 


Capital Group Private Markets is an experienced leader in emerging markets private equity and a pioneer of the global approach to building a diversified portfolio of the most compelling risk-adjusted investments across global emerging markets. For more than two decades we have backed strong management teams and market-leading franchises through selective access to the most compelling regions and sectors.

Through six emerging markets private equity funds, we have invested over US$5 billion in more than 80 companies.

Experienced global team

Our experienced team of local nationals has a strong long-term track record in emerging markets, with an average Partner tenure of 15 years with Capital Group Private Markets and an average of 25 years investment experience. Since 1992, our team has made private equity investments spanning 25 countries, providing our team with a deep knowledge across our focus markets and sectors.

The Capital Group Advantage

Capital Group Private Markets is the sole alternatives investment group within Capital Group, one of the world’s largest investment management companies with over $1.4 trillion in assets under management.

Our integration within Capital Group connects us to one of the world’s largest and broadest proprietary research platforms, which we leverage for valuable industry insights and macro analysis throughout our investment process. Our team benefits from the extensive knowledge and experience of Capital Group’s portfolio managers and analysts, who represent more than 50 nationalities and conduct thousands of company research visits in emerging and developed markets every year. Especially during due diligence, collaboration with our listed side colleagues, many of whom spend their careers focused on a single sector or geography, allows us to evaluate investment opportunities in a global context. In addition to collaborating with sector specialists, we leverage Capital Group macroeconomic strategists to support our analysis of currency and macro risks. Additionally, while the majority of the Investment Committee is comprised of senior Private Markets team members, senior Capital Group emerging markets investors also sit on the committee, which further allows us to benefit from the knowledge and experience of the broader Capital Group when considering an investment decision. 

While our separate and dedicated team of private equity investment professionals allows for autonomy and alignment with our investors’ objectives, our integration within Capital Group provides a scale and scope of global market insight few fund managers can match.

Long-term partnerships

The cornerstone of our business is long-term partnerships with our investee companies. Our commitment to accelerating the growth of emerging market companies aligns the interests of our investors with our investee companies. Investors gain exposure to diversified emerging markets portfolio, while investee company management teams benefit from our global experience and relationships.

The Capital Group companies manage equities through three investment groups that make investment and proxy voting decisions independently. Fixed-income investment professionals provide fixed-income research and investment management across the Capital organization; however, for securities with equity characteristics, they act solely on behalf of one of the three equity investment groups.
