As 2023 began, monetary policy was tightening across global economies in the face of rising inflation. Hikes in interest rates and the ensuing disruption in the banking system weighed on private markets, with mixed impacts on the alternative asset classes. Preqin's Q1 2023 quarterly updates evaluate the trends, including the increasing appetite for secondaries strategies in private equity, the growth of private debt generally, relative stability for hedge funds, and continued constraints to fundraising by venture capital and real estate funds.

It was a slow start to the year for private capital markets in APAC, with activity still subdued following a lackluster end to 2022.

Despite risk appetite toward China falling sharply and investors shifting their focus to smaller private capital markets such as Southeast Asia and India, the country remains the region's heavyweight.Our new APAC Private Markets Q1 2023: Preqin Quarterly Update explores fundraising and deal activity across asset classes during the first quarter, and why Greater China is vital for recovery in the region. While we maintain a relatively positive outlook for private capital’s long-term performance in APAC, there may be some downside in our forecasts when we revisit them later in the year.
