Ultrawealthy Pile into Private Equity.

The rich are increasingly enamored with private equity investing, but their rising allocation to PE funds doesn't mean they're cutting back on stock or cash allocations, according to a new survey of ultrawealthy investors by Tiger 21, a peer-to-peer network of high net worth individuals.

The 265 members polled-with investable assets of more $25 billion-increased their private equity allocations to 22 percent of the average portfolio during the second quarter of 2014, according to…
