Read the report

Private equity

We expect the combination of higher interest rates and slower overall economic growth prompted by monetary tightening to impact private equity as an asset class.

Venture capital

Even with the challenging macroeconomic outlook, venture capital is likely to continue as a core allocation for returns-seeking investors – especially once the valuation adjustment process is complete.

Private debt

With further interest rate hikes widely expected, we expect that private debt will attract more attention from traditional fixed income investors.

Hedge funds

The asset class is expected to experience more outflows and pullbacks before bouncing back. Allocators need to keep in mind that hedge funds can absorb negative shocks in the market and help them manage risk in their portfolios.

Real estate

While some asset classes look set for their AUM growth to significantly decelerate, real estate could be relatively well protected.

Infrastructure

Following a stellar fundraising year in 2021, global infrastructure is set to see its AUM gain ground on that of real estate by 2027.

Natural resources

Despite the macroeconomic uncertainty and rising recession fears, the asset class has really come into its own since and is now potentially offering investors opportunities well beyond the single use case of diversification that we have seen in years past.

Retail

Private capital is now a core part of institutional investor portfolios. Meanwhile, retail investors have remained predominantly confined to traditional investments.
