Parsing the Opportunities: It’s Time to Be More Strategic with Your PE Portfolio

With 2020 being a challenging year for all investments, PE was not immune to the market uncertainty. But the landscape for private equity investments has now begun to clarify, and as a result we are now focused on the trends that will shape the future of PE this year and in the near future. Many institutional investors have shifted their focus post pandemic – some are stabilizing their existing portfolio, but many others are looking to make additional allocations and deal activity is gaining momentum quickly.

One of the primary questions is where are LPs looking to place those allocations? And given the lingering challenges from last year, are they seeking to add to their allocations with current managers or are they looking to identify new managers and/or new strategies within PE? The pandemic has definitely shifted the way investors operate with a major uptick with building technology ecosystems, rebalancing portfolio risk and changes to the way GPs and LPs source and use data and information flows.

Private equity has not only weathered the storm better than most other asset classes within institutional portfolios but is positioned to come back with an accelerated growth trend. Among everything, growth opportunities in different sectors and regions across the globe for PE continue to be attractive, but how can LPs access them moving forward?
