Investing in private markets can help investors achieve their investment objectives with unique benefits not available in traditional asset classes.
Why are investors considering private market allocations?
Over the long term, private markets have outperformed traditional assets with the ability to tap into non-economic risk premia (for example, an illiquidity premium).
With valuations typically occurring on a quarterly basis, private markets do not experience the same level of mark-to-market volatility seen in public markets.
Private markets offer potential inflation hedging benefits, particularly for select natural resources, real estate, infrastructure equity and private credit strategies.
