Historical Performance of Alternative Assets
Annual returns of alternative investment funds have outperformed public equity markets over the past 10, 15, and 20 years.
Past performance is no guarantee of future returns.
The PE Index is sourced from PitchBook’s fund returns data which is primarily sourced from individual LP reports, serving as the baseline for our estimates of activity across an entire fund. For any given fund, return profiles will vary for LPs due to a range of factors, including fee discounts, timing of commitments and inclusion of co-investments. This granularity of LP reported returns provides helpful insight to industry practitioners but results in discrepancies that must be addressed when calculating fund-level returns.
To be included in pooled calculations, a fund must have: (i) at least one LP report within two years of the fund’s vintage, and (ii) LP reports in at least 45% of applicable reporting periods. To mitigate discrepancies among multiple LPs reporting, the PitchBook Benchmarks (iii) determine returns for each fund based on data from all LP reports in a given period. For periods that lack an LP report, (iv) a straight-line interpolation calculation is used to populate the missing data; interpolated data is used for approximately 10% of reporting periods, a figure that has been steadily declining.
S&P 500 Index data is sourced from Standard & Poor's, a world-renowned provider of market intelligence. S&P 500 Index data are annual compounded return calculations which are time weighted measures and are shown for reference and directional purposes only. The Private Equity Index is not an investable index and is used solely for illustrative purposes.
Due to the fundamental differences between the calculations underlying the PE Index and the S&P 500 Total Return Index, direct comparison of IRRs to time weighted returns is not recommended.
The Private Equity index data shown above does not take into account the effect of fees and expenses on the FundWiser feeder fund level which are levied on top of a target fund. FundWiser feeder fund fees and expenses, on average, amount to an annual management fee of 1% and a performance fee of 3.5% depending on, among other things, the feeder fund size, investment size, capital call schedule, additional fees levied by distribution partners (if any) and target fund terms as disclosed in the respective feeder fund’s documentation available on the platform.
