Private markets

In a market environment where forward-looking return expectations are lower, we believe it is prudent to look outside of traditional asset classes to find value or avoid certain risks.


Why invest in private markets?


Investor benefits

Improved return potential

Our aim is to deliver outsized returns over the longer term, focusing on opportunities that are transformational.

Illiquidity premium

Clients can gain access to the non-economic risk premia, especially skill, politics and illiquidity.

Lower volatility

Our approach focuses on providing flexibility to investors and highly opportunistic portfolio management across a broad risk spectrum.
