Private investing takes Unique Perspectives

At Wellington, we consider the private market from multiple angles.

As one of the world’s largest independent asset managers, we leverage the power of our deep industry research, our experts across asset classes, and our global networks in public and private markets. These resources enable us to find and support the private companies that we believe are poised to transform their industries.

Why invest in Private equity?

icon-1.svg
Higher return potential

While there is greater risk with private equity investing, there is potential for higher returns compared to traditional public investing.

icon 2
Lower market exposure

Private companies are not listed on a public market stock exchange; this could diversify a portfolio by providing uncorrelated returns.

icon 3
Greater access

Private equity investment unlocks the opportunity for exposure to hard-to-access, diverse, and innovative companies.

Capital at risk. Returns depend on portfolio companies’ success. Timing and valuation of liquidity can be uncertain. Holdings, pricing, and other data may be limited and thus less transparent than public-market investments.
