Private Market Outlook January 2024
For most of the past year, investors grappled with elevated levels of uncertainty. While the Australian and US economies managed to (so far) avoid an economic hard landing, persistent inflation and higher interest rates remained a concern for capital allocators. In this environment, investment portfolios that included exposure to alternative asset classes tended to deliver higher and more consistent returns. For 2024 and beyond, we expect long-term structural trends to support further growth across private markets with opportunities from repricing persisting in the coming years.
