Preqin Investor Outlook: Alternative Assets, H1 2019
Early 2019 represents a pivotal time for the alternative assets industry. With asset valuations currently at record levels, many in the industry believe we are at the peak of the equity cycle and are due a correction. Preqin's H1 2019 Investor Outlook presents the results of our survey of over 400 investors at the end of last year, which reveals that investors are still planning to increase their allocations to alternatives in 2019, even for those asset classes that have demonstrated sub-par performance in recent months. Amid weakening public markets, we look at investors' motives for investing and gauge their outlook on and plans for the next 12 months.
