Institutional investor insights – in search of liquidity

Whilst the denominator effect has been largely addressed, continued geopolitical tensions, macro uncertainties and liquidity constraints are just a few of the issues that are top of mind for today’s private equity investors. Although LPs remain committed to the asset class, they are increasingly pressuring GPs to return capital and sell off portfolio holdings to recapture some equity, and GP-LP negotiation dynamics have shifted in favor of the LP in recent years. What will 2024 hold for LPs as they search for meaningful alpha? Our panel of top allocators discuss their strategies for the year ahead.  

  • How are LPs tackling today’s environment, especially given liquidity issues? Has LP bargaining power increased?
  • Are LPs looking for more portfolio diversification and new managers, and has there been a shift away from private equity towards other asset classes?
  • Which strategies have been more popular amongst North American LPs, and will co-investments remain popular? Is NAV financing still a strategy that LPs are on board with?
  • What is the outlook for the year ahead?
