Real estate decreased to 19% from 21% in the fourth quarter of 2012.

“It is not that private equity is a better alternative than public equity for all investors, says Michael Sonnenfeldt, founder and chairman of TIGER 21. “Both public and private equity have seen increasing allocations as our members slowly wade back into increased equity exposure, reflecting a cautiously optimistic view.

“Because a high percentage of our members built their wealth by building private companies, we believe the findings indicate that they are going back to what they know best and are more focused than they were before 2008 on keeping things simple.”
