The GP-Led Secondaries Market: Growth and Opportunity
Wednesday, July 29, 2020
The secondaries market has seen unprecedented growth over the past 10 years, and now includes GP-led secondaries, preferred equity, continuation funds, and stapled transactions. In addition, market dislocation during the coronavirus pandemic is likely to lead to even further activity in this space as investors are expected to seek portfolio rebalancing and enhanced liquidity. Join us for a discussion on this dynamic market and the liquidity options now present for private funds and investors seeking portfolio adjustments and liquidity.
