The last few years have been exceptional for private capital markets. Boosted by falling, and previously negative, real rates, capital has flowed towards alternatives in recent years. By the end of 2021, private capital AUM had reached just over $9.3tn, up from around $5.5tn in 2018. But with rates on the increase for the first time in many years, the outlook is shifting. Across all private capital asset classes, Preqin forecasts suggest that the annual rate of growth will slow to 11.9% between the 2021 and 2027 period.
Join S&P Global Market Intelligence and Preqin as we discuss the findings from Preqin’s newly released Future of Alternatives in 2027 report and more, including:
