Benefits of Private Markets
As investors and advisors continue to move toward passive products for their public market exposure, they are increasingly seeking alpha from private market investments. Institutional investors have long turned to the private markets for their benefits and structural advantages relative to traditional public markets.
Conversus believes individual investors should have efficient, transparent and convenient access to the private markets by employing the same tools as the most sophisticated institutions. We believe our products can help individual investors achieve their retirement, education or financial goals through innovative solutions. Conversus will transform investor portfolios by providing expanded access to the private markets.
Together, Conversus and StepStone prudently integrate fund investments, secondaries and co-investments across private equity, real estate, infrastructure, and private debt to create solutions designed for high net worth and accredited investors.
By leveraging StepStone’s investment capabilities and expertise, Conversus seeks to offer private market investment opportunities to individual investors.
