What Makes GP-Led Secondary Transactions a Compelling Opportunity?

No assurance can be given that any investment will achieve its given objectives or avoid losses. Unless apparent from context, all statements herein represent GCM Grosvenor’s opinion.

Select risks include: market risk, macroeconomic risk, liquidity risk, interest rate risk, and operational risk.

Once just a small part of the overall secondaries market, GP-led deals have grown in popularity in recent years and could account for up to $60 billion of annual infrastructure single asset secondary transaction volume in the next 3-5 years.  


Here, Scott Litman, Managing Director, Infrastructure at GCM Grosvenor discusses how GP-led secondaries differ from traditional LP-led deals, and why we believe they present a compelling opportunity in the infrastructure space.
