Access the best in global private equity

As Australia’s leading private markets investor, Pacific Equity Partners has launched PEP Gateway to unlock global private equity for individuals. PEP Gateway is a premium strategy offering access to the best in global private equity, with regular liquidity.


Private equity has never been easy to get into or out of. Until now. PEP Gateway provides greater accessibility and liquidity for individual investors

The Best

As one of Australia’s most successful and established private equity firms, PEP is uniquely placed to partner with the best private equity firms in the world


Now you can diversify your portfolio with global private equity firms that consistently deliver excellent returns

Private markets advantage

Top-tier global private equity funds have consistently outperformed public markets. While pension funds, endowment funds and other institutional investors have enjoyed the benefits of consistently strong returns and relatively low volatility, individual investors often remain under-allocated. Now, through PEP Gateway, you can also access some of the best private equity firms in the world.
