LP Perspectives 2021: Survey methodology

Here’s how our research team conducted the annual study, in which the identities of the international respondents were kept confidential.

Perspectives is VCJ’s annual study of institutional investors’ approach to alternative asset classes. It 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 this 2021 study, VCJ’s Research & Analytics team surveyed 100 institutional investors. The field work was carried out from August to September 2020.

To encourage wide participation, the study is entirely confidential.
