  • We will see another acquisition of a major alternative asset manager.
  • GPs will increasingly hold some of their top-performing assets longer.
  • The big four public GPs will expand their strategy offerings at twice the rate of comparable GPs.
  • Sovereign wealth funds and pension plans will become more sophisticated investors, increasing control over investments.
  • VC-to-PE buyouts will continue to proliferate.
  • There will be continued expansion in growth equity deals.
