Investing in private equity may be a bad idea

Investment | Financial Planning

Interest in private equity has grown in recent years.

It’s becoming easier for ordinary investors to gain exposure to it.

But that doesn’t make it a good idea.

Here’s why.

We talk a lot about diversification.

Portfolios should contain multiple asset classes and risks levels

In order to minimise risk and yield better results.

Private equity is often one of those assets.

So why do we say it’s a bad idea?

Find out in our short video.



It’s important to fully understand our investments.

That includes all fees and charges, as well as proper performance measures.

Like transparency, regulations add credibility.

Whereas a lack of it may breed doubt.

Ultimately, peace of mind is what every investor wants.

And what keeps them investing for the long term.
