The UK’s Pension Protection Fund has appointed seven private equity secondaries specialists to a panel to advise on potential future deals.

The panel of recruits comprises representation from Goldman Sachs, Hamilton Lane, Lexington Partners, LGT Capital, Partners Group, Pantheon Ventures and RREEF.

They have been brought on to allow the PPF flexibility to take advantage of secondary market opportunities as they arise.

The PPF is a public financial corporation that compensates members in the event of their employers becoming insolvent. It has almost £4bn (€4.5bn) in assets.

Its target allocation for alternatives, including real estate, is 20 per cent.
