The Alternative Investor – April 2023 Edition

The April edition of the Alternative Investor is out today, with a look at March performances and great pieces from bfinance, AIMA and Seedrs.

We also look at some of the stories to have crossed our desk during the past month, from management consultants’ reports, recent fund raises and flows, buyout news, NFL looking at PE options, Blackstone’s new brand push, the lows (and handful of highs) from SVB and Credit Suisse fallout, macro’s Black Monday, activism, Blackstone property, crypto moves, regulatory updates, plus more.

  • bfinance | Kathryn Saklatvala writes about the slowdown in manager activity, what bfinance terms as investor hesitancy, as investors take a ‘wait and see’ approach to the current macro climate, but interestingly where there is resilience is the interest in private markets, which accounts for 58% of new manager searches.
  • AIMA | Claire Van Wyk-Allan provides eight valuable takeaways from the Global Investor Board for alternative investment managers, ranging from fees to relationships and ESG to portfolio valuations.
  • Seeders | Seedrs looks at the growth of ClimateTech funding in the VC space, which is at an all-time high and is reflected in what they are seeing on the Seedrs private investing platform, with more businesses and investors looking at this space.

We are as always very pleased to be joined by The Money Maze. The Alternative Investor is a collaboration between Brodie Consulting Group, Capricorn Fund Managers and RQC Group. 

We hope you enjoy this edition and, as always, many thanks for your support.
