In the 2020 Private Equity Outlook, we focus attention on General Partner-led (GP-led) secondary transactions that have evolved and are no longer just associated with general partners trying to dispose of lingering assets that have become hard to sell. The outlook also addresses:

  • The significant pull back in private equity in 2020
  • Our expectations for a decline in both capital calls and distributions from buyout funds likely leading to negative net cash flows for the coming quarters
  • Headwinds for perspective IPO’s
  • Impacts from Covid-19 on many portfolios
  • Our view on how the secondary market is very different than it was during the last economic downturn

We look forward to discussing this research with you.
