Private Equity, Hedge Funds & Investment Vehicles in the US
Increasing demand from institutional investors has contributed to the surge in the Private Equity, Hedge Funds and Investment Vehicles industry's assets under management (AUM) and revenue over the past five years. To a lesser extent, high-profile initial public offerings of leading alternative asset-management companies, as well as small investors' greater access to the market, have contributed to industry growth over the five years to 2018. Over the five years to 2023, institutional investors will continue to increase their investments in alternative asset classes as a form of diversification and to achieve higher returns than traditional asset classes like fixed-income, which have struggled because of interest rates remaining below their historic average.
