EQT Launches EQT Nexus: Enabling Individuals’ Access to the World of EQT
EQT has today launched EQT Nexus (or “the strategy”). Through this semi-liquid strategy, EQT will broaden its investor base and, for the first time, offer individuals the opportunity to access EQT’s wide range of strategies through a single investment.
EQT Nexus is a global portfolio that will invest in EQT’s strategies spanning mature buyouts to early-stage investing across geographies and industries, focusing on EQT’s flagship Private Equity and Infrastructure strategies. It will also co-invest in companies alongside EQT’s funds. The EQT Nexus Advisory team will be led by Advisory Head of Fund Strategy William Vettorato, who recently joined from Partners Group where he managed a global semi-liquid open-ended strategy. William joins a global advisory team that is driving EQT’s Private Wealth efforts, led by Partner Peter Beske Nielsen.
The launch of EQT Nexus comes at a time that institutional investors allocate significantly more to private markets than individuals. Historically, institutional investors have benefitted from superior access, lower liquidity needs and fewer regulatory constraints. This is changing, with individual investors’ allocations to private markets expected to grow 12 percent annually over the next decade. EQT believes that product innovations that aim to tackle the challenges for individuals looking to invest in private markets, such as EQT Nexus, will further accelerate this reallocation.
Suzanne Donohoe, Chief Commercial Officer at EQT, said: “EQT strives to be the most reputable investor and owner, creating attractive returns and making a positive impact for all. For three decades, more than a thousand institutional clients have entrusted EQT as we have grown to become one of the world’s leading private markets firms. With the launch of EQT Nexus, we are excited to finally be able to offer individual investors the opportunity to benefit from EQT’s approach and relentless focus on performance. Growing our efforts across Private Wealth is a key priority to us. EQT has created a team of about 50 people focusing on the area, and EQT Nexus is an important step on that journey.”
Gustav Segerberg, Head of Business Development at EQT, said: “To date, individual investors looking to access private markets have been faced with several barriers to entry, including significant investment thresholds, long lock-up periods and complex investment terms. EQT Nexus now addresses these challenges by allowing investors to gain access to EQT’s strategies through a single fully-funded investment and a simple, single layer of fees. We have been preparing for this launch for a long time and have made commitments to EQT funds and selected co-investments in advance to enable EQT Nexus to invest in an established portfolio from the outset, and we now look forward to what the future holds for the strategy.”
