Private markets enable investors to exploit illiquidity premiums
Both institutional and private investors generally consider the liquidity of assets before closing investments. According to Yale investment director David Swensen, less liquid investments tend to have greater degrees of inefficient pricing. Many investors overvalue liquid assets. This leaves less liquid – and thus often undervalued – assets for investors with long-term investment horizons.
