Private markets

Optimize portfolio diversification

Private markets investments provide the opportunity to achieve potentially higher long-term returns and greater portfolio diversification than public market investing.

Investments in private markets, including private equity, private credit and private real assets, have historically performed better, and with lower mark-to-market volatility, than the broad public markets. They also offer the ability to match longer duration assets with longer duration investment objectives.

Our private markets offering encompasses a wide range of discretionary and advisory solutions and fund management tools.

Advisory services

Our hands-on, personalized private markets advisory service is ideal for those seeking resources to complement the capabilities of their own staff.

Solutions can be tailored to meet your specific needs – from building initial private markets access to enhancing sophisticated, mature programs. Our expertise is strengthened by access to Wilshire’s proprietary database tracking thousands of private markets firms worldwide, as well as to comprehensive research reports and customized operational and reporting services.

While we take a collaborative approach during the deal screening and approval process, you would typically retain discretion over all final investment decisions.

Discretionary solutions

Our various discretionary solutions spanning asset classes provide attractive opportunities and fulfill different investment objectives.

Our fund-of-funds (FOF) solutions give you a cost-effective way to gain exposure to private markets via pooled investment funds that offer simplified decision-making and streamlined administration. They include vehicle structures designed to provide flexibility, as well as niche strategies that make the most of Wilshire’s deep qualitative and quantitative expertise.

We also offer customized private markets solutions via separately managed accounts that can be tailored to your specific goals and objectives.

Denotes inclusion with the service

Investments in private markets are illiquid and require less disclosure than registered investments. Investing in private markets therefore involves a higher degree of risk, including risk of a complete loss of capital, which may not be suitable for all investors.
