While it has been a very strong decade for private market returns, not all private market strategies have provided the same level of risk-adjusted returns. Growth-oriented strategies like Growth, Private Equity, and Venture Capital have delivered the highest 15-year horizon IRRs and with lower standard deviation than other lower-returning strategies like Real Estate, Infrastructure, and Oil & Gas. We believe these growth areas are better positioned to generate higher IRRs within closed-ended funds given their large opportunity set, accelerated ability to deploy capital, opportunities to drive operational improvements, and ability to generate attractive exit opportunities.
Asset allocation mix is of increasing importance as investors seeking higher return potential within portfolios look to scale up their illiquid allocations. The last decade shows that not all private markets investments are equal. We believe Growth, Private Equity, and Venture Capital are likely to continue to be the most attractive strategies for investors looking to maximize the returns generated from their illiquid allocations. Manager selection also remains a critical investment decision within private markets strategies, where there is typically a wider range of performance dispersion than in more traditional public market asset classes.
