At US$15 billion in annual transaction volume, the global secondary market represents a mere 1.2% of total private equity holdings. But it is growing faster than the industry, and is expected to double in volume to US$30 billion by 2010 (source: Lexington Partners Inc. database). As the fastest-growing niche in today’s private equity sector, the private equity secondary market is an attractive outlet for clients seeking early liquidity opportunities.
