The last 25 years have witnessed a significant shift in the role of private markets. Until fairly recently, alternative assets have remained the exclusive domain of institutional or ultra-high net worth individuals. Minimum ticket sizes that would typically involve seven figures meant that direct investments and funds were inaccessible to all but the top 1% of wealthy individuals or financial institutions that could deploy the significant assets under their management.
Alternative assets have long been considered unsuitable for the majority of investors given their illiquidity and risk profile. However, a significant change in investor sentiment over the last two decades has meant that they have become an attractive investment option for a much wider audience.Explore the full story

From traditional financial institutions slowly evolving their digital strategies, to disruptive new entrants and the emergence of marketplaces offering fractional ownership of niche assets, a lot of progress has been made. However, there is still a long way to go before private markets can be considered a truly ‘accessible’ financial product.Discover the market trends
