As of September 30, 2022. Coverage by geography and fund size is representative of the universe of investment programs (where a program is defined as a group of funds managed by the same manager which pursue a similar investment strategy, leverage, and/or investor pooling) on which Aksia has conducted due diligence (IDD, ODD, or Insight Report).

Each investment program is uniquely counted in its primary asset class (e.g., real estate credit funds are included in the private credit asset class coverage figures only).
