The growth across alternative assets to accelerate over the next five years giving Assets under management (AUM) total for the major alternative asset classes of $23.21tn in 2026, said a study.

According to a study by Preqin, AUM in private capital grew from $4.08tn at the end of 2015 to $8.90tn at the end of 2021 (an annualized estimate based on data to March 2021), representing a CAGR of 13.9%.
