The U.S. has an extended history of periods of financial regulation, specifically trust-busting. That period has been in hibernation though for the last 50 years, that is, until now. Many judges in the United States may be getting a slue of cases related to similar topics with mergers and competition as Private Equity has extended its ownership to unprecedented levels. There is more alignment than ever within the administration on the future of competition and private equity when it comes to policy. They are pursuing new readings and interpretations of longer-standing precedents that will be more stringent on PE. This new strain of regulation has long-standing Democratic Economists like Larry Summers voicing concern, calling the new policies ‘populist antitrust’.

Finsum: There have been a large number of papers on the effect of co-ownership and competition that private equity companies are imposing, and that could be reaching its peak.

According to a new survey by the alternative investment platform AssetTribe, the demand for alternative investments is expected to grow by up to 46% over the next 12 months. The research showed that the growth in demand for alternative assets is due to the current rate of inflation, an increasing need to diversify portfolios, and the potential for higher returns. The survey was conducted with over 580 sophisticated investors across the UK and Europe. According to the survey, the most popular alternative assets were real estate at 75%, long-term asset funds at 62%, and carbon net zero funds at 51%. The survey also showed that the wealthiest participants invested far more in alternatives than those with smaller portfolios.

Finsum: Due to inflation, diversification, and the potential for higher returns, the demand for alternative investments is expected to rise almost 50% over the next 12 months.

BNY Mellon is one of the biggest asset managers with $2.3 trillion in AUM, and they are expanding their offerings by building model portfolios designed for the UBS Wealth Management USA clients. They will be particularly designed to deliver more reliable results during business cycles and geared toward meeting income-generation goals with clients. The range of portfolios will come in three different income varieties: stable, strategic,  and a growth hybrid. They view this as a natural evolution of their business at BNY and they are well suited to deliver models to UBS to meet income goals.

Finsum: More investors are looking for income products and models are rapidly trying to adapt to this demand.
