In the view of Franklin Templeton, selected private markets sectors now offer compelling opportunities.

The gradual liquidity squeeze in private markets last year saw slowing exit activity, higher capital costs, bank failures, and macro uncertainty combine to create a challenging outlook.

Now, with U.S. interest rate cuts anticipated, Franklin Templeton believes that it will take some time for what is effectively a “liquidity queue” to work through the system. However, investors able to provide liquidity or deploy additional capital can take advantage of a number of compelling risk-return opportunities.
