Private Markets – Is democratization a good or a bad thing?15h00 - 15h30
Conference Room 4
Access to private markets for private investors is a hot topic, but is still dominated by supply side and demand side constraints.
On the supply side, the only widely distributable wrapper into the retail segment was the ELTIF, but there is a shortage of investment opportunities.
On the demand side, clients want private market investments to be as close to traditional investments as possible.
Against this backdrop, innovation happened in three dimensions (1) investment side, through semi-liquid solutions, (2) regulatory side through ELTIF review where the industry pitched in, (3) operational side, through tech solutions. We discuss how investors can successfully navigate this dynamic environment.
