The secondaries market has grown significantly in recent years. As the private equity market, and adjacent strategies, continue to evolve the secondaries market is developing ever-more solutions to market cycle situations and for LPs it is becoming a staple part of how they manage their portfolio. Pricing has been high in recent years too, which has presented its own opportunities and challenges. In the forthcoming years we expect to see some quality vintages come through. This forum will assess all the current issues, challenges and opportunities in one morning, with plenty of opportunity for networking too.
