BNP Paribas & Scorpio Partnership Releases 2018 BNP Paribas Wealth Management Private Assets Survey
BNP Paribas & Scorpio Partnership released the 2018 BNP Paribas Wealth Management Private Assets Survey, revealing trends of private investors’ increasing appetite for Private Equity and Private Real Estate funds.
” Active investors hold 16.3% in Private Equity and Private Real Estate funds “
In the survey, active investors hold 16.3% in Private Equity and Private Real Estate funds, 15.8% in cash and 15.3% in stocks / equities. 50% of HNWIs are also willing to invest at least USD 500,000 in 2018.
Conducted by Scorpio Partnership for BNP Paribas Wealth Management, the survey explores the behaviours and trends of private investors and non-investors in Private Equity and Real Estate (PERE) funds. The report polled 337 High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) with more than $5 million in investable assets across nine countries in Europe, Asia and the Gulf region.
Claire Roborel de Climens, Global Head of Private and Alternative Investments at BNP Paribas Wealth Management:
“Over the past 12 months, we have seen a significant pick up in clients’ appetite for Private Equity and Private Real Estate funds. In this persistently low interest rate environment, investors are looking for diversification and double digit returns to optimise their portfolio’s risk return profile. We are aiming to raise almost a billion euros in 2018. The Private Market funds we are planning to launch over the next six months will allow our clients to fully benefit from exposure to the real economy in Europe, Asia or US where on the one hand, high-performing companies need to develop further and on the other, value-added Real Estate strategies can be implemented. These strategies respond to clients’ demand and are differentiating for the ongoing development of BNP Paribas Wealth Management’s activity.”
