In FY21, most institutions posted very strong one-year returns. How did private equity stack up against public market returns? How should investment committees be measuring these typically illiquid investments that are inherently different from publicly traded investments? There are unique risks and return drivers in private equity. This session will explore performance, time, and risk tolerance considerations that must be understood and evaluated when investing in this nuanced asset class.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the unique set of return measures in private equity.
  • Compare the difference between gross and net returns in this alternative asset class.
  • Explore options for analyzing and benchmarking private equity returns.
