Alternative Investments Benchmarking Survey

Allocations to alternative assets have been steadily increasing in recent years, as institutional investors look beyond traditional investment vehicles to diversify their portfolios and generate higher returns. While some firms continue to invest indirectly through private market funds, others are looking for a larger share of the profit and more direct control—either through co-investment and other forms of partnership, or direct investment, if they have the means to do so.

Asset managers have grown more sophisticated in how they invest as they allocate more capital to these assets, but many firms continue to struggle with some of the challenges inherent to alternative assets processing. Many of these challenges are due to the data itself, namely issues related to latency, transparency, structure, and standards ─ or rather, the lack thereof. This executive summary highlights some of the key findings of our Alternative Investments Benchmarking Survey, conducted during the third quarter of 2020.
