Private equity is an illiquid asset class that can potentially enhance your portfolio's returns and help mitigate risks. These unique and attractive investment opportunities are often unavailable via public markets.
Our manager research team seeks to originate thematically-relevant opportunities across the private equity spectrum, including debt, equity, and structured products focused on both developed and emerging economies.
An opportunistic approach to origination combined with a rigorous due diligence process underpins our goal of seeking to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns for you.
We strongly believe in the benefits of long-term exposure to private equity. However, we also recognize that there are more favorable times for investing in particular themes and regions within these asset classes.
We therefore seek opportunities that are well positioned to exploit either or both current market aberrations and long-term secular trends.
Finding the most promising investment opportunities in private equity requires intensive research and due diligence.
We believe this is best done by local experts in the specific market or region, rather than by distant teams and our offices are located around the world.
As well as selecting suitable themes and managers, we try to deliver the appropriate structure for your needs and risk appetite.
Instead of only offering standard private equity funds, we have created investment clubs and separately managed accounts through which to invest.
You can therefore not only exploit investment opportunities that are unavailable in the public markets, but also access them via a wide range of options, many of which are unique to Citi Private Bank.
An investment in alternative investments (e.g., hedge funds, private equity) can be highly illiquid, are speculative and not suitable for all investors. Investing in alternative investments is for experienced and sophisticated investors who are willing to bear the high economic risks associated with such an investment. Investors should carefully review and consider potential risks before investing. Certain of these risks may include, loss of all or a substantial portion of the investment due to leveraging, short-selling, or other speculative practices; lack of liquidity in that there may be no secondary market for the fund and none is expected to develop; volatility of returns; restrictions on transferring interests in the Fund; potential lack of diversification and resulting higher risk due to concentration of trading authority when a single advisor is utilized; absence of information regarding valuations and pricing; complex tax structures and delays in tax reporting; less regulation and higher fees than mutual funds; and manager risk.
