Gianni & Origoni | The Growth of Italian Private Markets: An Overview on Permanent Vehicles, Club Deals and SPACs

Private markets have seen an unprecedented growth triggered by the macroeconomic scenario. There has been an exponential expansion of private markets deals with a subsequent increase of investment opportunities in private assets with a risk/return profile better suited to deal with the expected uncertain and volatile scenarios of public markets. However, the lack of specific regulations makes the exploitation of, and access to, investments in private opportunities difficult. In fact, existing alternative investment opportunities can only be subscribed by a limited number of professional investors. This article analyses some of the new market trends in Italy and solutions aimed at investing in private markets through listed vehicles, including permanent capital PE vehicles and Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs).
