Evolution of LP Needs
Description: Are strong fundamentals in industrial, multifamily and life sciences encouraging investors to increase their allocation to commercial and residential real estate?

In addition to secondaries, what tools exist for LPs to manage their portfolio and reduce administrative burden? In this fireside chat, we’ll sit down with a Judy McMahan, Senior Portfolio Manager of Real Estate at UPS, to discuss the evolution of real estate as an asset class and how her team’s needs constantly evolve with the market.

In previous inflationary periods, real assets outperformed other asset classes. Today we’re reaching the highest inflation expectations in nearly a decade. Which allocators have best positioned their portfolios to capitalize on infrastructure ? What risks must be considered? What structures and sub-sectors are most compelling today? Although this asset class may not be “flashy” it may be exactly what allocators need to support returns.
As private and public funds flow into infrastructure projects, managers must consider how technological advancements and cultural shifts introduce new opportunities and obstacles. This panel explores the once-in-a-generation opportunity for private equity infrastructure investors. How are managers addressing the overwhelming needs and maneuvering challenges across sectors, including renewable energy, digital, and social? What mistakes are investors making? What steps are being taken to secure our infrastructure from threats like cyber-attacks and fallout from geopolitical conflicts?
In today’s volatile market investors seek stable returns. Private, patient infrastructure funds are innovating to address this need. As mega-funds hit the market, GPs must differentiate their thesis to attract capital. What’s resonating with investors and what’s not? As oil and gas continue to outperform other energy investments, how do funds strategically go after these gains while adhering to ESG initiatives and mandates? This panel of capital raising experts will explore whether or not there is there a gap in infrastructure fundraising as the industry seeks to tackle the next generation of energy, communications, transportation and social projects.
