Liquid Private Equity
Windham’s Liquid Private Equity Portfolio seeks to match the sector exposures of private equity funds by allocating to public equity sector ETFs. These allocations are determined by measuring the co-movement of the State Street Private Equity Index with public equity sectors.
Built to capture a component of the private equity
risk premium while preserving liquidity.
Windham’s Liquid Private Equity Portfolio can be deployed in several ways:
Serve as a private equity substitute for investors who require liquidity.
Deliver competitive returns.
Hold capital that has been committed to private equity funds but has not yet been called.
Gain exposure to an important source of private equity returns while waiting for the opportunity to invest directly in private equity funds.
Measure the co-movement of the State Street Private Equity Index with public equity sectors to determine the sector exposures.
Map these sector exposures onto estimates of expected return.
Optimize to determine efficient allocation to public equity sectors.
