U.S. public markets have recently undergone a period of considerable volatility. Between mid-September and mid-October, major U.S. equity indices underwent losses ranging between roughly 8% and 10%.

Armed with PitchBook data, and with Mr. Schwimmer's insights, we've produced some results, which you can find by clicking here.
