Private Investments: Exploring opportunities beyond public markets

Recorded: 17 May 2018

  • Key message:
    • With public markets at record or near record valuations, defined benefit pension schemes need to find alternative sources of return to continue closing the funding deficit. Private Markets offer long-term investors access to these alternative sources of return: Globally, over 99% of companies are not listed on a public exchange and there is a rich opportunity set of investments that can be missed by investors that focus solely on public markets. 

  • Why attend:

      - An overview of the Private Market investment spectrum 
      - Some of the potential merits and drawbacks of Private Markets investing
