PE secondaries could reach USD100 billion, says Commonfund Capital’s Cari Lodge
Are LPs looking to move tactically out of certain PE investments to free up liquidity ahead of concerns over a market slowdown? And if so, is this creating a good opportunity for Secondary investors to pick up LP interests at a healthy discount?
Both General Partners and Limited Partners in private equity funds increasingly see the merits to using the secondaries market, which continues to deepen and provide various liquidity solutions. Last year, market volume grew to USD79.7 billion and is “on track to reach USD100 billion this year”, according to Cari Lodge (pictured), Head of Secondaries at Commonfund Capital.
