November 20, 2017 / by NEPC

Pensions & Investments included comments from NEPC's Scott Perry, CAIA, Partner, in a recent article covering NEPC's Endowments & Foundations Q3 Survey. 

"Although investors' outlook for private equity may be cooling, almost everyone plans to either increase or at least maintain exposure," said Scott Perry, partner in NEPC's endowment and foundation practice, in a news release announcing survey results. "While they recognize that future private equity returns may be lower than in the past, private equity is still expected to provide a better long-term return than other asset classes. However, we continue to counsel our clients to take a thoughtful approach to investing in private equity. This often means focusing on niche strategies and seeking out managers who have displayed discipline around capital deployment."
