LP Perspectives Study 2021 methodology

How we conducted Private Debt Investor’s annual LP Perspectives Study.

Perspectives is Private Debt Investor’s ninth annual study of institutional investors’ approach to alternative asset classes.

More specifically, our LP Perspectives 2021 Study aims to provide a granular view of the alternatives market, both current and future, by gathering in­sight on investors’ asset allocation, propensity to invest, and performance predictions. It is a global study, reflect­ed in the question set and the respond­ents, which allows for meaningful global views and cross-regional com­parisons across alternative asset classes. The question set is reviewed annually, with the objective of reflecting market developments and shifts in sentiment.

For the 2021 study, we surveyed 100 institutional investors. Fieldwork was carried out from August to Sep­tember 2020. Participation in the LP Perspectives Study is always anonymous.
