JD Morris is always looking for accredited investors to funds to co-invest with us in funds, companies, and moonshot deals. We are happy to meet with people and share our data and resarch such as from Pitchbook’s Analysis of Public PE Firm Earnings: Q3 2020
Overview of Analysis of Public PE Firm Earnings: Q3 2020is provided by Pitchbook
• The five largest publicly traded PE firms posted healthy performance
numbers for their PE strategies. Blackstone and KKR posted doubledigit gains in the quarter. Most of these managers’ funds have positive
performance on the year now, and this healthy recovery is likely a sign to
come for other managers that report later.
• Concentrated investments among a few key themes including technology
and life sciences drove performance figures for Blackstone and KKR. These
managers credited tech investments as the primary drivers of returns in the
quarter. All five firms discussed how they were approaching investments in
high-growth areas of the economy, although some have been more bullish
on these concentrated bets than others. Going forward, it seems as if these
managers will continue to allocate as much or more capital to high-growth
• Permanent capital was a principal talking point again this quarter. While
KKR, Carlyle, and Ares seem focused on trying to replicate a similar strategy
that has proven effective at Apollo with insurance assets, Blackstone is
deviating. The largest private capital manager is rolling over a $14.6 billion
real estate holding into a new perpetual life vehicle that could prove to be a
method of growing permanent capital that others may follow.
Again, we are happy to meet with accredited investors and fund to explore deal flow sharing and co-investing.
