June 29, 2020

Secondary Private Equity Market Commentary 
by Laurence G. Allen

  • In June 2020, we see improving secondary market demand for interests in a variety of private equity funds, including energy funds.
  • In June, NYPPEX managed 8 auctions and had price matches on all 8.
  • In general, each auction received higher bid prices and more bidders than in prior weeks during the COVID-19 quarantine period
  • . With recent increases in oil prices, we also estimate there is greater demand for secondary interests in energy funds.
