The number of investment opportunities and complexity of markets have increased significantly in recent years. Limited Partners generally have lean investment teams, which can make covering the whole market challenging. Leveraging SPI™ can help investors scale their resources, enabling them to specialize in activities that add more value, such as focusing on who we believe are best-in-class managers.
Our investment team leverages a proprietary collection of data to create differentiated analytics and research. The insights gained from meeting with thousands of managers each year and evaluating them on a primary, secondary, or co-investment basis helps to shape and hone our investment thesis.
StepStone maintains more than 60 Market Maps illustrating the competitive landscape for various strategies and regions. These maps provide context for manager evaluation by displaying peers and fundraising timing.
