Investments may both increase and decrease in value, with no guarantee of recouping the initial investment. Past performance serves as no guarantee for future results, and it’s important to note that investing in a fund differs significantly from depositing funds in a bank. For comprehensive information on potential risks, charges, and expenses, refer to the fund documentation.
Furthermore, investors usually receive illiquid and/or restricted membership interests, which may be subject to holding period requirements and liquidity limitations.
In a prudent private equity investment strategy, private equity should constitute only a portion of your overall investment portfolio. This allocation might encompass a diversified range of private equity funds. It’s crucial to recognize that private equity investments lack liquidity, and individuals who cannot commit to holding an investment for an extended period, typically at least five years, should reconsider such investments.
