Why should I invest in Private Markets?

Investing in private markets provides an avenue to explore unique investment opportunities with distinct and untapped potential return profiles. This enables diversification beyond traditional assets, offers the potential for achieving higher long-term returns, and aligns with long-term strategies, setting it apart from short-term tactics.

However, investing in private markets also carries different risks, and individuals who can not afford to risk their entire investment should avoid investing in such funds.

What range of returns can I expect from private market investing?

Private market investing can potentially yield annualized returns of 8% to 15% or more with equity multiples often in the 1.4x-3.0x range. However, these returns can vary significantly based on asset class strategies and market conditions. It's essential to be aware of the inherent risks and conduct proper due diligence before investing.

What is the advantage of being on the Vennre platform?

The advantage of being on the Vennre platform lies in its ability to overcome the barriers that typically hinder investors when accessing private markets opportunities including:

  • High minimum investment tickets
  • Complex transaction and management costs
  • Complicated legal and tax structures
  • Stringent KYC/AML requirements

Who can use the Vennre solution?

What’s the minimum commitment?

The minimum commitment depends on the underlying investment opportunity. For feeder funds, the minimum allocation starts at £/$/€ 25,000.

What is the typical hold period for the presented opportunities?

The investment horizon varies for each opportunity, but most investments typically have a holding period of 3-7 years.

Will the Vennre team give me investment advice?

No. For regulatory reasons, we can't advise individual clients on their specific investments. Please consult your investment advisor or consultant.

Is my commitment drawn upfront or through a capital call schedule?

In general, it is based on capital calls subject to the underlying opportunity and commitment size.

What kind of fees should I expect?

Each opportunity has a standard fee structure laid out in the marketing material. Generally, Vennre charges for structuring fees, administrative fees, and profit-sharing fees.

How does Vennre select its investment opportunities?

We apply best-in-class due diligence and selection process to ensure that curated opportunities from top managers will make it on to our platform and into our users’ portfolios. Our rigorous onboarding and due diligence processes are designed by Quantitative Data Driven Proprietary Scorecards that mitigate human bias and improve workflow efficiency. While we see hundreds of opportunities, our conversion rate is only 2% of the best and hand-picked opportunities.

Where would my investments be held?

Your investments through the Vennre platform would be held by a regulated custodian in a Feeder Fund. Vennre collaborates with third-party top-tier regulated custodians based on the jurisdiction of the transaction to ensure the highest standard of security and compliance.

Does Vennre provide any tax advice?

Vennre doesn't offer tax, legal, or accounting guidance. Our tax structures are tailored for users within the GCC and MENA region, yet every user should seek advice from their own tax consultant before investing in any opportunity.

FAQs material has been prepared for informational purposes only, and is not intended to provide, and should not be relied on for, tax, legal or accounting advice.

What does the KYC/AML process look like?

The KYC/AML process differs depending on whether you're investing as an individual or with an entity. Individual investors typically only need to supply personal information and provide ID documents to verify their identity. Investors who invest through businesses or trusts must provide details on the entity's ownership structure and identify any UBO (Ultimate Beneficial Owner), as well as provide proof of registration.

Who manages the KYC/AML process?

The KYC/AML process is digital and supported by our dedicated team, who will guide you through each step of the process. Additionally, we offer concierge services to ensure that the entire KYC process is simple and hassle-free for you.
