Why Private Investing?
Wealth is created not only in the public markets, but also by private businesses.
The Ontario exempt market raised $91.61 billion in capital in 2017. The world’s most successful institutions and high net worth investors have been investing in this space for generations and have achieved above average rates of return utilizing an asset mix combining traditional and private and alternative investments.
The largest and most successful institutions in the world like the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) which manages over $539 Billion for the benefit of every Canadian has altered their asset mix in recent years to include private/alternative investments.
