Private Markets: The New Traditional Asset Class

Date: Tuesday, November 21, 2023

It is our belief that private and public markets are swapping roles in financing the real economy. Although many public markets companies were the foundations of the modern economy, we are now in the midst of a profound change. While public markets have become impressed by the IPOs of high-profile, yet sometimes unprofitable companies, private markets aims to work hard at investing assets and building businesses. This shift is real and represents a significant opportunity for institutional investors.

Join us for an educational session featuring Samantha Cleyn, Head of Institutional Sales & Service, BMO Global Asset Management and Adam Howarth, Co-Head of Portfolio Management, Partners Group. In this fireside chat, they will delve into the implications for institutional investors and address: 

  • How private and public markets have changed roles in financing the real economy;
  • Why infrastructure and real estate is ripe for transformation to keep pace with the needs of our future economy;
  • Beyond the core: how value creation-focused strategies are taking centre stage; and, 
  • How being active, dynamic, and transformational will be the new defensive private markets strategy

BMO Global Asset Management recently launched, in collaboration with global private markets firm Partners Group, the BMO Partners Group Private Markets Fund. This Fund uniquely offers Canadian institutional investors access to the full breadth of Partners Group’s private market capabilities but also a globally diversified portfolio of Real Estate, Infrastructure, Private Credit and Private Equity - all in a single evergreen solution.
