In recent years, private equity has become a key element of the investment strategy of many pension funds, endowment funds, institutions and wealthy individuals. The primary reason relates to the improvement in asset allocation and the high relative returns that private equity brings to a portfolio of investments. The improvement in the asset allocation with the addition of private equity reduces the overall risk of the investment portfolio even though it is perceived as a riskier asset class.


Our investment offering provides diversification across various geographies, underlying currencies, industries and sectors. For the South African investor, gaining exposure to a basket of foreign currency denominated private equity assets, spread across various geographic locations, provides solid portfolio diversification benefits.
