1. What’s the role for private debt and alternatives within portfolios?

For the longer term, I think the one risk premium that's still under-exploited is that of illiquidity, which you can find particularly in the private debt markets, but also in some of the credit markets, which may have monthly liquidity rather than weekly liquidity. There is a complete change going on in the financial services industry, with the individual investors now taking the place of banks. You can lend directly to individuals, you can support trade finance, you can be in micro finance. And I believe that those kinds of investments will become more mainstream over the course of the next four or five years. With sovereign wealth funds, they already are. It's coming to the retail market too.
