Dear Reader

It's been a while since we published the last newsletter. But we have not been inactive in the meantime. We are very pleased to present the first SECA Private Markets Guide

With the very first "Private Markets Guide" we are fulfilling a heart's desire for numerous investors. The aim is to provide institutional as well as private investors with a market overview of the local private market providers and their currently investable investment vehicles. That is why the year "2021/22" is attached to the title of this guide. This makes it clear that we have not only kept this guide up to date. Rather, we will publish it regularly and enrich the second edition with updated information.
