Private Assets Investment Week | Asset owners
In response to the pandemic, most developed countries have launched quantitative easing and other authoritarian fiscal and monetary policies. The oversupply sparked inflationary fears which, coupled with low interest rates, made bond markets less attractive. To complicate matters for traditional investors, the stock markets are overvalued, constantly surpassing all-time highs.
Faced with this difficulty, many institutions are increasing private investment allocations, replacing existing traditional investments. The Covid-19 offered investors a good backdrop to rationalize the increase in the allocation to private assets. Private debt in particular has taken center stage. In a sustainable era of low interest rates, the asset class has shown resilience, while offering better returns and stimulating diversification. And the different trenches offer different maturities, returns and risk profiles. Investors realize the potential of the asset class in their tactical and strategic allocation strategies.
The 2021 virtual event brings together top asset owners and renowned investment managers to discuss current and future private debt investment strategies, and due diligence processes to create resilient and hedged portfolios against l inflation and specific private debt investment opportunities in the midst of this unprecedented period.
