Performance Magazine -January 2017

In this edition of Performance Magazine, we thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at some of the issues facing a sub-sector of the industry—the alternatives sector.

We were fortunate to have Alan Flanagan, Global Head of Private Equity and Real Estate Fund Services at BNY Mellon give us his thoughts on the trends affecting private equity, real estate, and infrastructure. As well as responding to some of the challenges, Alan highlighted a number of opportunities for those firms to play a role in the financing of the services required due to the trend toward urbanization. Financing previously provided by governments or the banking sector may no longer be there, creating an opportunity for alternative sources of finance.
