Trusted Insight’s platform includes 68,000 LP investor professionals in 98 countries and territories around the globe. About 30,000 institutional investors engage with Trusted Insight each week. They are actively investing in alternative assets, primarily private equity, hedge funds, real estate and private companies. Its users consist of pension funds, endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds, family offices, banks and insurance companies. It is a platform for qualified purchasers rather than high net worth investors.
