Setter Capital survey predicts strong H2 for secondary market in alternatives
Setter Capital, an adviser to institutional investors and fund managers buying and selling private equity and property funds, has published data suggesting that secondary market volume in this space will be 30% higher in the second half of 2013.
The projection is contained in results of a survey done through August of some 100 of the most active secondary market buyers.
Additionally the survey found that many buyers in the market intend to broaden their focus to other fund types, such as infrastructure and real estate – although the biggest respondents to the survey do not, because they already buy across most alternative asset categories, Setter said.
Setter added that on the basis of the answers received, it believes that the volume in the market is higher than has previously been believed.
“We expect the market to continue to grow as more buyers and sellers enter, and existing participants increase the scope and volume of their activities,” the survey concluded.
