  • Investors with private capital allocations assign considerable resources to forecast future capital calls which is an act of necessity rather than choice. The challenge for LPs is to estimate the amount required and schedule of calls to meet their commitments. Committed capital today is unlikely to be called in immediately. GPs may postpone drawdowns with anticipation that asset price will adjust or be in a search for acquisitions that match vehicle strategy.

    In this paper, Arvydas Jadevicius PHD, assesses the typical capital calls velocity for closed end APAC non-listed real estate funds. The study contributes to a better understanding of capital calls velocity. It can also enrich LPs’ non-listed APAC real estate funds investment programme.
