AltAssets is a business-to-business company which manages an online financial news website focused on the private equity and venture capital industry. AltAssets was launched in 2001 and is based in London. It was originally owned and operated as a service by private equity advisory firm, Almeida Capital, but was acquired by Investor Networks Limited in March 2013 and re-launched as an independent news and networking platform for the alternative assets industry. It has introduced a premium news service which is used by over 3,000 paying customers (March 2013).

AltAssets focuses on the news and information that is most relevant to Limited Partners (LPs) and General Partners (GPs) who are concerned with fund investment, fundraising, investor relations, marketing and communications. Its news service covers a number of areas within private equity including:

AltAssets also hosts forums designed to connect LPs and GPs with interest in a particular sector. In addition they launched Limited Partner Magazine in January 2012 to provide news and opinions focussed on the institutional investor perspective of the private equity industry. The magazine is circulated to over 4,400 LPs


According to information provided by AltAssets, they provide news services to over 10,000 institutional investors and 20,000 private equity professionals globally.

Competition among publications within the private equity industry has intensified in recent years. Among AltAssets' competitors are PEI Media, The Deal, Buyouts, Private Equity Analyst (published by Dow Jones & Company),PE Week and PE Hub (among other media published by Thomson Reuters) and Real Deals (published by Caspian Publishing) and Unquote and AVCJ published by Incisive Media. Whilst most publishers provide generalist coverage of the private equity industry or focus on transactions, AltAssets claims to focus on the LP-GP relationship.
