Private Assets

60 minutes with Jonathan Gray

A discussion between Jon Gray, President and COO at Blackstone, and César Pérez Ruiz, CIO and Head of Investments at Pictet Wealth Management

Private-asset investment strategies, which aim to transform an asset to create value, give investors access to the ultimate form of active management. The transformational ownership opportunity provides more direct control over performance than traditional investment vehicles. Furthermore, private investment strategies are inherently resistant to the threats of automation and passive replication.

As we review the trajectory of current investment trends, many are heavily entwined with private assets. The landscape that is of particular relevance to investors with an illiquidity tolerance and seeking higher portfolio returns includes technology disruptors (many of which are privately held companies), real estate and private credit.
