Private equity outperformed public market amid turmoil

Private equity investment platform Moonfare disclosed today that its assets under management increased by almost 90% in 2022 as market volatility pushed investors away from public markets.

Moonfare investors grew 63% to 3,272, and the community of registered users more than doubled to over 46,000. The number of individual investments increased by 70% to 8,462.

Steffen Pauls, founder and CEO of Moonfare, said: “Private investors are more and more catching up with professional, institutional investors and have discovered that private equity can be a safe harbour from inflation and high stock market volatility.”

Data suggests private equities performed well and transcended public markets, especially in slump periods.

Amid market volatility, investors are showing interest in “inflation-protected, yield-generating asset classes such as real estate and infrastructure”, said Magnus Grufman, Moonfare’s head of investment.

Moreover, investors are also looking to benefit from “secular trends”, including tech disruption and healthcare or the reconstruction of global value chains. “These are the investment themes global private equity players are betting on”, commented Grufman.
