For ten years now, we have been able to observe that a large part of the increase in the value of companies takes place before they go public. In order to participate in this increase in value, access to the so-called private markets is needed. Private equity and venture capital are the best-known products in this area. The investment volume in private equity has more than doubled in the last ten years.
For good reason: According to market research data, private equity investments have a higher return than equity investments. In addition, there is another strength: the low correlation with companies listed on the stock exchange ensures a broader diversification of your investments Until now, it was mainly reserved for large investors such as pension funds or foundations, as a large minimum investment volume of several million euros and great administrative effort were required.
With the Kathrein Private Markets Platform, we at Kathrein now offer qualified private investors access to this asset class for the first time.
With the Kathrein Private Markets Platform you can invest easily, digitally and ﬂexibly in the global private equity markets. You have exclusive access to a fine selection of international funds managed by the leading private equity managers. The selection and composition of the funds is based on a professional selection process by the Kathrein Private Equity expert team and our partner Moonfare, an established, experienced and globally active private equity manager. This guarantees the highest quality of the investments.
Investments in Private Markets and their sub-categories are speculative and risky, as well as illiquid and therefore unsuitable for investors who cannot hold their investment for the long term (at least 10 years).
Investments in Private Markets should therefore not be seen as a stand-alone strategy and should always be part of a balanced, broadly diversified portfolio of financial assets.
The Alternative Investments offered on the Moonfare platform are not subject to supervision by the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA) or any other Austrian authority.
