Given the growth of the private markets and their higher return potential vs. public markets, the democratisation of private equity and its accessibility to retail investors is gaining importance in creating viable long-term saving plans – and as a way of funding public innovation.

In 45 minutes gain key insights from leaders from two of the sectors' leading firms: Blackstone and Cohen & Steers. Retail investors struggle to gain exposure to the small, high growth start-ups and in this era of rapid innovation around thematic investments from climate tech to health tech and digitalisation the demand is huge. However, it also comes with practical challenges around regulation, risk and liquidity. In these sessions we will hear insights from three of the leading firms in the market about how to take private markets to the retail markets for everyone’s mutual benefit.


On the agenda:

14:10 - 14:30 | The market outlook for real assets: growing trends and benefits of having illiquid assets that are normally just the preserve of institutions in the wealth portfolio

With Jon Cheigh, Executive Vice President, Chief Investment Officer and Head of Global Real Estate, Cohen & Steers

14:30 - 14:50 | INDEFI Private markets interview: The transformation of European private markets for retail investors and the rise of differentiated investment opportunities
