SS&C Releases Intralinks 2022 Limited Partner Survey Results
The sixth annual survey highlights LP views on alternative investment performance and investment plans for 2022.
WINDSOR, CT, October 18, 2021 (PR NEWSWIRE) – SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced its SS&C Intralinks 2022 LP Survey results. The survey found most Limited Partners (LPs) believe alternative investments met or exceeded their performance expectations for 2020, and three-quarters of investors plan to increase their allocations over the next 12 months. Produced in partnership with Private Equity Wire, the sixth annual survey offers insights from nearly 200 globally dispersed investors.
"The last 12 months have been crucial for alternative fund managers," said Bob Petrocchi, Co-Head of SS&C Intralinks. "Impressive annualized returns have allowed General Partners (GPs) to show strength, and most LPs plan to increase their allocations. Yet only 25% of respondents were ‘very satisfied’ with GP technology capabilities. So there is an opportunity for GPs who embrace technology to improve the GP/LP relationship and gain a competitive edge.”
80% of Limited Partners’ (LPs) were overwhelmingly positive, confirming their alternative asset portfolios had met or exceeded performance expectations. Additionally, hedge fund performance showed continued strength in 2020, delivering the best performance in 22 years.
Other key findings include:
- Over 80% of LPs feel it’s important for GPs to adopt technology to improve the quality of portfolio reporting and transparency.
- 55% of LPs plan to increase their number of GP relationships.
- 69% of LPs agree or strongly agree current market-dislocation opportunities should prove beneficial to alternative assets over the next 12 months.
- LP sentiment is mixed regarding the leveraged buyout space, with most LPs either somewhat optimistic or cautious.
- LPs would like to see improvement in due diligence and ESG data.
