The leading mainstream equity indices, in the end, performed relatively well in 2020, despite the chaos of the early months, but the performance was highly selective and often resulted in excessive inflows into a relatively limited number of huge capitalisation technology, healthcare and selected other stocks. And meanwhile, the growth of the private debt markets has been phenomenal over the last decade as the market has developed to offer additional yield to investors who are prepared to accept less liquidity and potentially longer holding periods. And of course, the public fixed income market since early 2020 has had investors on tenterhooks, as the market reacted first to the unprecedentedly low interest rates, but later to the spectre of inflation as it broke the surface amidst the latest tsunami of QE. The remarkable volatility and uncertainty afflicting the public equity and debt markets have only served to further reinforce the enthusiasm of many leading sovereign, quasi-sovereign, institutional and of course, private wealth market investors for the ever-expanding world of private equity, private debt and other private market investments. 

In our Digital Dialogue of May 20, Hubbis will assemble a top-flight panel of expert 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.

    Private Markets – More Appealing than Ever for the Asian Private Wealth Community?

    • Why are the private equity and debt markets continuing on their headlong expansion, which has been accelerating for most of the past decade?
    • Is investing in private markets becoming much more important to single and multi-family offices?
    • Does investing in private markets especially resonate with the second generation especially given their growing interest in impact investing and the wider topic of ESG?
    • Has the pandemic and the fallout in the financial markets added further impetus to the market’s growth across the world?
    • Who is driving the dramatic global expansion of the private equity and private debt/credit markets worldwide, and why?
    • Where are the opportunities, ie in which markets, currencies, sectors, countries, regions and so forth?
    • Are Asian HNW and UHNW investors allocating more to these private markets and if so how much more and why?
    • Within Asia, is it the global brand private banks that are best positioned to deliver the private market products and advice, or the boutique international private banks, or perhaps the IAMs/EAMS?
    • How do investors approach the private equity and debt/credit markets and what are their expectations in terms of returns, timeframes and what are the trade-offs between illiquidity, diminished volatility and time?
    • What assets are included in the world of private assets, and where is the overlap with the world of alternative investments? Aside from private equity and debt/credit, what about real estate/infrastructure, for example, where does that fit in?
    • What allocations should HNW and UHNW investors be making to private assets as a percentage of their total portfolios?
    • Private equity and venture capital have been outstanding performers in institutional portfolios for several decades, and most evidently in the past 10 to 15 years, but there is a growing list of failures as well as the numerous successes, so how do advisors and investors sort the wheat from the chaff?
    • Is there sufficient expertise in the Asian wealth market to cope with the rising interest?
    • What are the obvious and less apparent dangers of the global drive towards private markets, and is there a danger of demand driving dangerous excess and over-optimism?
