News from the world of alternative investments
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. In a February 2021 blog post, we aim to provide a brief overview of illiquidity in the investment universe and explain how investors who want to increase their allocations to less liquid assets can embrace lucrative investment opportunities created by private markets.
