The year that was 2023 was like no other in the secondaries market: Blackstone’s Strategic Partners raised the world’s largest-ever secondaries programme; the US Securities and Exchange Commission voted through rules impacting how GP-led secondaries should be run; machine learning and generative artificial intelligence made its pronounced appearance in the LP secondaries market.

At Secondaries Investor, we’ve enjoyed every minute of covering the market for you. We’re taking a break for the holidays and will return on Tuesday 2 January.

In the meantime, we’ll be bringing you our time-honoured end-of-year pieces, including our top transactions, fundraises, and of course, top people moves of 2023.

We hope you enjoy the festive season and we look forward to catching up in the new year.
