Defining the Alternatives Opportunity

 

Introduction to Private Equity

GSAM Insight

Introduction to Private Equity

August 3, 2022

As an asset class, private equity has gained increasing attention among both companies looking to access capital and investors looking to diversify beyond traditional public markets. Over the last two decades, the number of companies backed with private capital has grown significantly, while the number of publicly listed firms has contracted. This trend has been driven in part by increasing regulatory requirements of public companies and the accumulation of investor capital looking for alternative sources of return. Given the increased complexity and higher thresholds governing investor access to private equity (including potential illiquidity and higher investment minimums), it’s important to understand the nuances of investing in this growing asset class.

 

Understanding Private Credit

GSAM Insight

Understanding Private Credit

October 20, 2022

A company in need of debt financing—whether for ongoing operations, business expansion or corporate acquisitions—can turn to various sources of financing. One common source is a loan from a bank, which would then either hold the loan on its balance sheet or syndicate it to a group of similar investors. A large company can also issue bonds that subsequently trade in the public markets. Or the company can turn to private credit, working with a single lender to craft a tailored capital solution.

 

Income-Generating Alternatives

Income-Generating Alternatives

August 12, 2022

Over the past decade, private credit and private real estate have emerged as attractive income-generating alternatives for investors searching for yield in a low-rate environment. While interest rates have started rising, these asset classes can continue to be attractive alternatives due to risk-adjusted return potential and ability to access parts of the market that are not available in publicly-traded instruments.

Disclosures

Alternative Investments – Alternative Investments are subject to less regulation than other types of pooled investment vehicles such as mutual funds. Alternative Investments may impose significant fees, including incentive fees that are based upon a percentage of the realized and unrealized gains and an individual’s net returns may differ significantly from actual returns. Such fees may offset all or a significant portion of such Alternative Investment’s trading profits. Alternative Investments are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information. Investors may have limited rights with respect to their investments, including limited voting rights and participation in the management of such Alternative Investments. 

Alternative Investments often engage in leverage and other investment practices that are extremely speculative and involve a high degree of risk. Such practices may increase the volatility of performance and the risk of investment loss, including the loss of the entire amount that is invested. There may be conflicts of interest relating to the Alternative Investment and its service providers, including Goldman Sachs and its affiliates. Similarly, interests in an Alternative Investment are highly illiquid and generally are not transferable without the consent of the sponsor, and applicable securities and tax laws will limit transfers. 

 

Conflicts of Interest 

There may be conflicts of interest relating to the Alternative Investment and its service providers, including Goldman Sachs and its affiliates. These activities and interests include potential multiple advisory, transactional and other interests in securities and instruments that may be purchased or sold by the Alternative Investment. These are considerations of which investors should be aware and additional information relating to these conflicts is set forth in the offering materials for the Alternative Investment.

A fund, underlying funds, and/or portfolio assets may utilize leverage which could have significant adverse consequences. In particular, a fund will lose its investment in a leveraged portfolio investment more quickly than a non-leveraged portfolio investment if the portfolio investment declines in value. Money borrowed for the purpose of leveraging investments will also be subject to interest costs as well as financing, transaction and other fees and costs that may not be recovered. You should understand fully the risks associated with the use of leverage before making an investment in a fund.
