Private Markets

“By reducing overall portfolio volatility and enhancing yield stability, private assets could have much to offer at a time of public market turbulence and lower return expectations for traditional asset classes.”1

“Increased access to private equity is also drawing keen interest from individuals and their advisers.

Not only are private equity’s historically superior returns attractive (14% globally over the past 25 years vs. 7% for the MSCI World Index), but true diversification in the public markets has become harder to achieve over time.”2
