Accessing Private Equity on the Stock Markets:

Private equity, as an asset class, has delivered better returns compared to the global equity markets over the long-term and with a good deal less volatility. And investing in private equity funds that are listed on the London Stock Exchange has many advantages over investing in unquoted private equity funds that demand high minimum investments and long lock-up periods. Yet, share prices of many leading private equity funds currently trade at unusually wide discounts to their fund values or net asset values (NAVs).

We see this as an opportunity given that a leading global private equity fund listed on the LSE, Pantheon International, has recently announced a key policy change – to use a portion of its annual cash flows to buy back its own shares – that should act as a catalyst for narrowing, if not eliminating, its own share price discount over time.

In our upcoming Free Workshop in the Alex Hotel, Dublin on Wednesday, 17 th April next, founder of GillenMarkets, Rory Gillen, will outline the historical track record of the UK listed private equity sector, the likely reasons for the outperformance, the various stock market-listed fund choices within this niche sector and why Pantheon International’s policy change could herald similar moves across the sector.
