Hedge fund managers are investing more in private opportunities as they see it as a way to improve performance, attract investor assets and fun new ideas. Private investing is perceived as less risky today than it was 10 or 20 years ago as companies are waiting longer before their IPOs. They are more mature and often have multi-billion dollars in revenue. Recent tax law changes provide another impetus for hedge fund manages to include private investing in their funds.
In this white paper, Peltz International examines the reasons for hedge fund managers moving into private opportunities, the various structures used, why not all hedge fund managers are taking this route as well as liquidity issues and other concerns.
