LP allocations to private equity: staying committed

Please Note: This session will not be available to watch on-demand.

Despite continued economic upheaval, LPs remain committed to private equity as an asset class, although investors are favoring different strategies, sectors and specializations beyond large fund buyouts, with a particular focus on the middle market and co-investments. What does the outlook hold for LP allocations in 2024? A panel of top regional institutional investors will share their views on capital allocation and portfolio construction and discuss the unique complexities that they are facing, as well as their top priorities for the year ahead. 

  • What are the top opportunities and concerns affecting LP allocation decisions as we head towards 2024?
  • What strategies and sectors are investors prioritizing as they navigate the current market- are LPs favoring smaller funds as opposed to buyouts?
  • Will co-investments continue to play an increasingly large role in LP’s portfolios, and how does this impact LP-GP relationships?
  • Will LPs remain overallocated to the private markets, and where are LPs looking for emerging market asset allocation?
