Schroders Capital Semi-Liquid solutionsDemand for private markets keeps rising, and not just among institutional investors
What are open-ended evergreen funds?
Open-ended evergreen funds, or “semi-liquid” funds, represent a relatively new route to access private markets.
These funds are open-ended, meaning investors can subscribe and redeem at regular intervals at the prevailing net asset value (NAV) of the fund and have no fixed life.
What are the benefits of open-ended evergreen funds?
For private wealth clients, routes of access into private markets have historically been limited to closed-ended investment trusts, with traditional funds having significant barriers to access including; high minimums, capital call drawdown structures, long lock ups etc.
Open-ended evergreen funds in the UK represent a complementary option to investment trusts, giving consumers greater choice in how they access private markets.
How do open-ended evergreen work?
Open-ended structures, where investors can buy and sell at a prevailing NAV, historically, have had limited applicability in private markets, due to the illiquid nature of the underlying investments.
In response to this, semi-liquid structures have been developed to provide liquidity in a controlled manner. A well-constructed portfolio, one that is diverse by geography, sector, type and vintage, can engineer a level of “natural liquidity” that is regular and consistent. Semi-liquids also employ liquidity management tools that can control liquidity within the fund.
The result is a platform that provides investors with a liquidity window without compromising returns and helps them meet their investment objectives.
