Demystifying private equity valuation: Is there a better way?

Share this article

Although Private Equity has become increasingly prevalent in institutional investment portfolios, the measurement of risk and return over time remains rudimentary when compared to liquid markets.

Most investors rely on IRR data, which may have self-reporting biases, lack transparency and is subject to long time lags of the reported data. Others simply use a standard reference rate (market index + x%) to proxy the return of their Private Equity investment portfolio.

Having been at the vanguard of Private Equity benchmarking, LPX AG has developed an innovative index series that allows investors to benchmark their private equity investments without the typical flaws of existing datasets and benchmarks.

In addition, the LPX NAV Index Series provides an early indication of valuation changes due to the daily availability and maintenance of the data.

Join our webinar on 17 May, 3pm BST / 4pm CE, where we will demonstrate how the data is gathered and how investors can benchmark risk and return more efficiently for their Private Equity investment portfolio with a panel of experts consisting of:

  • Michel Degosciu, PhD, Managing Partner of LPX AG, LPX Group
  • Jürg Burkhard, PhD, Principal at LGT Capital Partners, LGT Capital Partners
