Article of Interest: How the chase for yield is benefitting alternative asset managers in a BIG way

In a recent article, the Barwon Global Listed Private Equity team have discussed what has triggered the growth in alternative asset managers (AAMs) and why they are partnering with insurance companies.

With interest rates at historical lows and looking to stay that way for the foreseeable future, we are seeing many investors looking at AAMs as a source for higher income.

AAMs have had a strong performance this calendar year to date and whilst valuation multiples have clearly expanded, we believe the share price appreciation is supported by robust fundamentals, solid investment performance through the pandemic, and perhaps more importantly – an expanding total addressable market (TAM). One of the biggest areas of growth for a number of the large established AAMs has been partnerships with insurance companies. And specifically, in the area of annuities.

Article of Interest: Staying Private for Longer

The Barwon Global Listed Private Equity team have shared their thoughts on the growing trend amongst companies to stay private for longer.

Traditionally, a company would appear to have “made it” when the founders were able to ring the bell when listing in the public market via an initial public offering (IPO). Fast forward to today and we are seeing a huge change in the investment landscape with companies staying private for much longer and delaying their IPO.

To read their insights to know why this trend has arisen and how it has benefited companies and early stage investors, please click here.
