The trauma of being an investor in public markets over the past 12-months, combined with the growing number of high-quality opportunities in non-listed areas, aided by greater acceptance of illiquidity risk, has all created compelling reasons for institutional investors to grow their allocations to private markets.

The sixth annual Investing in Private Markets, Europe 2022 report brings together leading asset allocators from across the spectrum of pension funds, insurance, and other institutional investment groups to explore the array of opportunities and challenges to advancing a private markets allocation mix. Through the engaging format, these senior asset allocators outline their views and discuss through roundtable debates the issues driving their thinking about where to allocate assets in the broad private markets sector.
