Private Markets Masterclass: Private Equity, Private Debt & Private Real Assets

Description

Private markets attract a considerable amount of attention and enthusiasm for their performance, diversification effects, and growth of assets under management. Among the different strategies, private equity capitalises on new technologies and trends (venture capital), fast growth companies (growth capital), repositioning of assets and strategic evolutions (leveraged buyouts). Private debt aims at providing investors a differentiated exposure to yield (senior/direct lending), possibly including capital gains (mezzanine debt) and to company restructuring (distressed debt, loan-to-own). Private real assets (private real estate, private infrastructure, timber, natural resources) offer different combinations of yield capital gains, inflation protection and downside protection. All these strategies share common traits, such as the use of equity and debt instruments, over a rather long duration, with active involvement of fund managers and negotiation of specific rights, usually to support high risk/high return projects.
