  • Increased professionalisation of family offices is ‘significant transformation’
  • Family office executives increasingly empowered to manage assets in switch away from investment managers
  • Younger generations demand more sophisticated investment strategies and greater transparency, Ocorian says

Ocorian, the specialist global provider of fund administration, capital markets, corporate, trust, and regulatory and compliance services, has revealed the findings of its detailed industry report, The Private Capital Journey, which serves as an in-depth exploration of the private capital landscape.

Investigating findings from an independent study*, this comprehensive guide examines the growing significance of private capital including the factors contributing to its rise, the key players involved, and insights into the investment strategies and structures essential for navigating the complex field of private capital, and its deployment.

It addresses several pivotal topics, including how the next generation can drive the growth of private capital, and the professionalisation of family offices, which are significantly influencing its growth.

Michael Betley, Global Head of Private Client at Ocorian, said: “There is no doubt that private capital is having a moment. EY reports that assets under management (AUM) in private markets topped US$24tn in 2023, its highest-ever figure. This is not a one-off spike, but a steady increase over the past decade.

“Our report provides a valuable, in-depth analysis of future trends, macro-economic and market conditions, and private capital’s highly influential role in global markets - which will only deepen and grow.”

Throughout The Private Capital Journey, Ocorian’s panel of experts explore various investment strategies and structures, offering insights into how third-party providers assist clients in unlocking the full benefits of investing in private capital.

From understanding the intricacies of next gen investing to the rise of professional family offices, the report provides a holistic view of the private capital landscape. Download it here.
