This edition of the Global Fund Performance Report features two new improvements. First, it includes preliminary returns data to enable directional results to be apparent months earlier than they would be using the previous methodology. Second, the report now splits real estate out of real assets for all PitchBook's fund reporting to provide more granularity in analysis of those strategies. The preliminary data showed that while returns did dip in the first quarter as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, an astonishingly quick adaptation to the new environment resulted in a jump in returns for PE and VC in the second quarter. Real assets funds, comprising largely energy funds, have tread their own volatile path in 2020 with geopolitical activities somewhat removed from COVID-19-related impacts.
