Analyst Note: Is the Risk Worth the Wait?

Analyst Note: Is the Risk Worth the Wait?

This analyst note utilizes a simple methodology to gauge the risk/ return profile of buyout funds by analyzing the dispersion of fund returns over a 12-year period between 2000 and 2012. To do this we take the Sharpe ratio, which is generally used to analyze risk-adjusted returns of an individual fund, and apply that to groups of funds across different strategies, sizes and vintages. The analysis begins with a comparison of risk/return profiles between buyout funds and other private market strategies, then focuses solely on buyout funds across different vintages and sizes.

Analyst Note: Investors Just Don't Wanna Have Funds-of-Funds

Analyst Note: Investors Just Don't Wanna Have Funds-of-Funds

In recent years, alternative asset managers have spent considerable time rethinking the channels through which limited partners (LPs) access private capital funds. Highly sophisticated institutional investors have been the targets of many of these initiatives. At the same time, asset managers have continued innovating to make private capital markets more accessible for the masses. As investors have gravitated towards one side or the other, more traditional access options—namely FoFs—have suffered. PitchBook's latest research note unpacks the drivers behind the decline in FoF, as well as important points regarding their potential pathway forward.
