Private Markets

Scouring the globe for unique and differentiated managers and strategies

Institutional investors with enough scale and a tolerance for illiquidity look to private market investments to satisfy their appetites for enhanced returns.

Private market investments, however, are complex and exhibit unique risks.  Such programs require careful design, reviews of hundreds of investment opportunities annually, and heightened back office administration.  Successful implementation requires specialized skills and robust resources.

Since 1999, Meketa’s sizeable team of private market specialists has managed all aspects of program implementation across the full range of private market opportunities. We offer a range of services from discretionary program management to narrowly defined support in a specific area such as:

  • Strategic planning
  • Portfolio construction and commitment pacing
  • Investment and operational due diligence
  • Manager selection, monitoring, and reporting
  • Cash flow management and back-office support
  • Specialized project work
  • Board and staff education

Within private markets especially, we believe manager selection and access is critical to attractive risk-adjusted rates of return.  We rigorously evaluate hundreds of investments each year and render unique perspectives on the numerous strategies used by managers to generate top-quartile returns.

Our specialized teams and processes have been built over decades to construct effective client programs and select investment managers that we believe are in the top tier of their respective asset classes.

There is no one-size-fits-all ‘best idea’ for private market investing. Rather, Meketa builds private market programs for its clients through hard work, deep resources, and extensive market knowledge and networks.
