The days of institutional investor portfolios simply comprising listed equites and bonds are long gone. Private market assets now have more influence over the strategies set by long-term investors.
Indeed, nine pension schemes and insurers have committed to investing £50bn more in private assets in the next seven years.
Higher-growth potential is one reason, with fledgling companies securing early stage growth capital privately instead of going to the public markets.
They also provide diversification through offering access to a range of asset classes including property, infrastructure and direct lending.
Investment in alternative assets could increase further, with a survey from State Street showing that three-quarters of institutional investors in the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific expect the economic conditions to create better value in such assets.
With the continuing importance that institutional investors are placing on alternative assets, portfolio institutional is hosting a private markets conference in April 2024.
Reserve your place at this event which will examine alternative investments in detail and hear experts discuss:
- Investing in illiquids
- Private debt
We hope to see you there!
