WHY PRIVATE EQUITY?
Private equity is no longer an alternative, it is a mainstream component of portfolios today
Private equity plays a significant role in the investment strategies of many of the world’s largest institutions. Investor qualification requirements, high minimums and lack of liquidity have historically made it difficult for a broader range of investors to access the asset class. This situation is changing, however, with the launch of new private equity vehicles tailored to the needs of eligible individuals.
In the current environment, when stocks and bonds are increasingly moving in tandem, we believe private equity can serve as an important source of differentiated returns and diversification benefits. Private equity managers seek to create value by playing an active role in shaping the strategic direction and management of businesses.
