Nordea: "More capital muscle" for private equity managers

There are pros and cons to the intense focus on private equity, says Nordea Asset Management's head in the field, Christen Estrup. However, he is seeing some segmentation in the market, and Nordea's strategy is all set to react.

Private equity managers now have a stronger supply of capital, which is revving up the returns for investors  already in unlisted equities. But this development also has a twist, says Head of Private Equity at Nordea Asset Management, Christen Estrup.

"The increased supply of capital has given the private equity managers 'more capital muscle', which in turn has led to higher prices on companies. This has increased the returns for many existing investors in private equity – but on the other hand, it has also created some uncertainty about future returns for the companies that are bought at high prices," Christen Estrup writes in an e-mail to AMWatch.
