The Private Equity of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Play • 22 min

As we continue to navigate challenging market dynamics including rising inflation, difficult labor markets, elevated valuations and ongoing geopolitical tensions, investors are considering how to fill their expected return gap. Traditionally, Private Equity has offered important return potential and diversification benefits that help fill that gap which has allowed the asset class to grow dramatically over the last 30 years. But could we see that growth continue as markets take a downturn? In this episode of Disruptive Forces, Managing Director, Maura Reilly Kennedy, joins Anu Rajakumar to tell us more about the evolution of private equity, its unique characteristics and diversification benefits, additionally highlighting scenarios where private markets can differ from public, making it an attractive component of portfolio construction.
