Welcome to the latest issue of Private Equity Strategies. We hope you are enjoying your summer, and will take us along if you need some beach reading beyond the latest issue of People magazine.

This month we’re opening with a brief update on how sovereign wealth funds are planning to increase allocations to private equity, alongside other alternative asset classes and infrastructure. The move is part of a broader secular trend on the part of long-term investors, which have struggled to find places to invest long-term capital.

In our Movers and Shakers column we speak with the founder of Sporting Ranch Capital about their unique assets.

We also cover the notable rise in private equity fundraising and dealflow across all subsectors. Our Insiders View Column further covers new regulatory changes on escrow and distributions – timely information for GPs in this exit environment.

As usual we’ve also included our monthly Regs Watch and Quick Hits columns for brief updates on regulatory changes as well as new transactions, people moves and events. Please reach out to us if you have story tips or ideas that you’d like to share.

This article was published in Opalesque's Private Equity Strategies our monthly research update on the global private equity landscape including all sectors and market caps.
