AVCAL Data Collection

What is AVCAL PEREP_Analytics?

The AVCAL PEREP_Analytics platform is a web-based data collection platform capable of collecting, analysing and disseminating Australian PE and VC activity data. The platform was first developed by the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (EVCA). Since 2009, the AVCAL PEREP_Analytics platform has been a key element of AVCAL’s research and advocacy activities. Data from the platform underpins our research, including the Annual Yearbook and the Deal Metrics Study, and industry data in our Government submissions.*

What is AVCAL PEREP_Analytics used for?

The AVCAL PEREP_Analytics platform collects fundraising, investment and divestment information directly from Australian PE and VC fund managers, along with Economic Impact Data such as employment and portfolio company financials. Submitting data into this platform is mandatory for AVCAL PE and VC members, as set out in AVCAL’s membership Code of Conduct. Since AVCAL’s PE and VC membership constitute the majority of the industry, and supplemented by known information on non-members’ activities, AVCAL’s database is widely regarded as the most representative and accurate source of data currently available on the Australian PE and VC industry.

Who has access to AVCAL PEREP_Analytics?

Australian PE and VC fund managers (both members and non-members of AVCAL) receive an invitation once a year to submit their data via the platform. The platform is however accessible to Australian PE and VC managers all year round.
If you are a PE or VC manager with an Australian office and have not received an invitation from AVCAL, and would like to submit your data, please contact the AVCAL Research team for your login details. Non-members who contribute their data will receive the same benefits of participation as AVCAL members (see below).

What are the benefits of participation?

1. Access to more detailed industry data (see here for details)
2. Complimentary pass to an industry statistical briefing by AVCAL following completion of the annual data collection exercise
3. Customized research reports by request

What are the platform’s privacy settings?
