Investor appetite for private markets stayed unabated for the past 10 years given their strong value proposal: a portfolio diversifier and volatility dampener, and overall among the best risk-adjusted returns in the universe of investable assets.
Given their long-term nature, investors should be very selective in order to capture the different premiums embedded in private markets investing.
Indeed, selectivity and diversification are key to consider, and to that point, Amundi has developed a selection process that has led to longstanding relationships with highly skilled funds across regions and strategies. Depending on clients’ needs, Amundi can develop tailored products to meet your criteria across different asset classes namely private equity, infrastructure, private debt and real estate.
