Why private markets?

Private markets are an important component of investor portfolios, and this partnership comes at a time when both private markets opportunities and allocations to the asset class continue to grow. Since 2008, capital allocated to private markets has tripled from $2.5 trillion to $7.7 trillion. (Source: June 2020) The private markets asset class has continued to demonstrate its ability to generate meaningful returns for investors. Data from Hamilton Lane illustrates that private equity and private credit have each outperformed the MSCI World PME and the Credit Suisse Leveraged Loan PME, respectively, in 19 of the last 20 vintage years.
