A successful track record is an important indicator of the maturity of a private equity market. LAVCA and EY partnered on a series of private equity awards to bring recognition to fund managers with successful deal cases in Latin America. The investments were honored in the Latin American Private Equity Deal Book & ESG Cases, in response to demand from LPs for specific examples of private equity case studies and in early December, when LAVCA, EY, and AS/COA hosted a dinner and seasonal reception in New York to announce the winners of the inaugural Latin American PE Awards.

Case studies also have an environment, social, and governance (ESG) component as this has become increasingly important for institutional investors.
