Currency Effects on Private Market Portfolios
Investment returns for a private markets portfolio (or for that matter, public markets portfolio) are a derivative of a number of variables. In the current market environment, for example, rising rates, inflation, geopolitical risks, supply chain issues (to name just a few) -- have all led to broader market volatility that in turn impacts an investor’s portfolio return.
