The growth in assets under management (AUM) in alternative assets is poised to accelerate over the next five years, as investors increasingly look for more ways to diversify their investments and hunt for yields.

According to research firm Preqin, AUM in alternatives will grow from US$13.3 trillion ($18.6 trillion) at the end of 2021 to US$23.21 trillion by 2026, with private equity and venture capital assets under management forecast to account for US$11.2 trillion.

Benjamin Twoon, co-founder and chief commercial officer at investment platform Fundnel, says the growing interest in alternative assets in the private markets is driven by ample liquidity caused by quantitative easing. This, and the fact that tech start-ups’ tendency to stay private for longer, has drawn investors’ interest in the space.
