An increasing number of private clients in Asia have been seeking to diversify their portfolios by including longer-term private asset investment strategies of all types, from plain vanilla early and later-stage private equity, to private debt of all types, private commercial real estate deals, hedge fund strategies, and so forth. Such assets can offer investors strong long-term performance potential, while their historical downside resilience and lower volatility compared to public market securities also help make this asset class attractive for portfolio diversification and, to some extent, for peace of mind.

The trend in Asia reflects a seismic global shift towards private markets amongst leading investment institutions – from sovereigns to pension funds - and also increasingly in the private wealth sector.

The Asian HNW and UHNW clients that are taking up more of such opportunities need a highly professional point of access via private banks, the independent wealth community and other key specialists. They need experts who can filter, package, promote and then monitor these investments, thereby opening the door to what are considerably more complex and longer-term holdings. For the wealth management community investing in building and delivering this expertise, the carrot is significantly higher fees than in the public markets.

Diversification to private assets offers investors the chance to get into longer-term income and capital gain opportunities, albeit requiring a considerably longer time horizon due to the minimal liquidity available, although more and more deals are being structured to offer some modest liquidity throughout the general 3-10 year holding periods. Naturally, due to the lower liquidity and longer holding times required, these deals more suit the upper HNW and UHNW segments, although access to private markets is also being democratised by slicing and dicing, sometimes even for mass affluent investors via digital assets/tokenisation.

For our Digital Dialogue of April 7, Hubbis will assemble a top-flight panel of experts to look in-depth at the evolution of the private markets, looking from a 360-degree perspective at the pluses and minuses and analysing where the market is heading and how the Asian wealth management community is positioning itself for what will very likely be the ongoing and rapid expansion in the years ahead.

    Expanding Allocation to Private Assets. Why? How? And What’s Next?

    • The Big Picture – are volatility, inflation, global geopolitical uncertainties in the public markets driving more Asian private clients to the private equity and debt markets, and what are key attractions of higher allocations to private assets compared to public markets?
    • Which types of private clients in Asia are driving this trend, and looking ahead, what sort of allocations should HNW and UHNW investors be making to private assets as a percentage of their total portfolios?
    • In the private equity market – spanning from VC to pre-IPO funding, what are the key opportunities today and what are the key criteria investors need to consider?
    • In the private debt markets – spanning from senior to subordinated, trade finance and much more – what types of deals are Asian clients buying into, and why?
    • What about other private assets, for example real estate or alternatives?
    • Do ESG and sustainability play a significant or growing role in private markets?
    • What is the wealth management community doing to boost its private markets proposition and offerings?
