HarbourVest Partners, LLC (“HarbourVest” or the “Firm”), a leading global private equity firm, is pleased to announce that the readers of Private Equity International have named HarbourVest the Fund of Funds of the Year in North America and #2 Fund of Funds in Asia 2012.

The editors of Private Equity International recognize HarbourVest’s 2012 acquisition of Conversus Capital’s portfolio of private equity funds and co-investments as even bigger than our 2011 purchase of listed private equity firm Absolute – highlighting the trend of consolidation in the listed private equity world. The editors also cite HarbourVest’s establishment of our newest location in Beijing.

HarbourVest’s 30+ years of investing in private equity rank the firm among the most experienced in the industry, and we are pleased to be recognized by Private Equity International readers once again.

About the Private Equity International Awards
Since 2001, Private Equity International magazine has conducted the industry’s largest annual global readers poll to determine which private equity firms and transactions market participants rate most highly. The outcome is determined entirely by the industry’s participants, not the publication’s editors, making them the only entirely democratic awards in the private equity industry.
