1. Why do Private Markets have the potential to deliver higher returns than traditional assets?

Private markets have the potential to deliver superior returns over public markets, for a variety of reasons. First is the hands-on ownership of the assets. You can take control of your own destiny, and you're operationally focused, you get into a company, and you can correct the things that are going wrong with it. You can build that asset, and make strategic acquisitions in order to re-purpose this asset to become considerably more valuable than you could otherwise by just being a passive equity investor.
