ADDX Fireside Chat: Democratization of Private Equity

Going public and ringing the bell at an exchange used to be the dream for many entrepreneurs. However, in recent years more and more companies shy away from going public due to easier and cheaper ways to raise capital privately. According to a report by Deloitte, it is predicted that worldwide private equity (PE) assets under management will reach $5.8 trillion by 2025. Yet, the burgeoning PE sector remains highly out-of-reach to mass affluent and middle-income investors.

In recent years, global PE powerhouses are seeing the democratization of PE investing as the next key growth driver. They are driving democratization via a mix of outreach, education, partnerships, and innovative solutions to reach a broader investor base.

In this webinar, we get to learn from Partners Group, a leading global private markets firm with USD 119 Billion of assets under management as of the end of June 2021 to explore topics such as:  

  1. Why is private equity growing exponentially?
  2. What are the main drivers behind the growth of private equity?
  3. How does Partners Group help democratize this out-of-reach asset class?
  4. What are some performance metrics used to evaluate private equity performance?
  5. What are the advantages and disadvantages of private equity in your portfolio?
