New York, London, New Delhi: December 14, 2023 – Oxane Partners (“Oxane”), a leading technology-driven solutions provider to private markets, held the third edition of its annual client forums, Engage 2023, in London and New York in the last week of November. The invitation-only networking events were attended by private market leaders from investment banks, private credit funds, hedge funds, and institutional asset managers.
The attendees exchanged thoughts on this year’s market activity, their strategic priorities, and the outlook for 2024 and beyond. Some of the themes that were raised in the discussions included:
– Cautiously optimistic outlook as private credit continues to grow – The attendees highlighted cautious sentiment towards certain asset classes, such as real estate while certain other areas such as asset-based finance (ABF) continue to gain prominence as the broader private credit market grows further. Given the ongoing structural shift as traditional bank financing continues to retreat, ABF serves as an important funding source for companies in times of high inflation and macroeconomic uncertainty.
– Role of AI/ML in private markets – Reflecting upon the growing role of AI/ML, ChatGPT, and alike in private markets, the consensus was to focus on practical use cases that drive real value. The participants also highlighted that the effectiveness of the latest in technology is only harnessed when it’s paired with domain expertise who understand the industry well.
– Strategic preparedness for 2024 and beyond – Many industry leaders emphasized technological preparedness to effectively tackle the operational challenges in the rapidly evolving investment landscape. The participants highlighted there’s a growing cognizance to prioritize digitalization in enabling scalable growth as private markets continue to gain the interest of investors globally.
