Quiz: Did you follow private markets in 2022?

2022 brought drama galore to the private investment landscape. Our quiz has the highlights, the lowlights and everything in between.

For private markets, 2022 was a year of two halves. Unlike the stock market, which began selling off practically before the hangover from New Year’s Eve 2021 had worn off, private markets rode the euphoria for another couple of quarters.

The result was a montage of events that seemed bizarrely contradictory. WeWork’s Adam Neumann launched a startup months before Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes was sentenced to jail. SoftBank’s Vision Fund unit had sweeping layoffs while the rest of the VC world set a fundraising record. PE giants jumped into blockchain funds as the crypto fantasy unraveled.

Take our quiz to see how well you recall some of the year’s big stories.
