PitchBook has unveiled its debut standalone performance measurement product, PitchBook Benchmarks. Leveraging a differentiated data collection process, PitchBook Benchmarks are able to provide unprecedented transparency into the underlying funds and performance metrics used to construct each of the benchmarks we publish. This enhanced level of granularity helps limited partners (LPs) make more informed asset allocation decisions, while general partners (GPs) can leverage our benchmarks to gauge and report the relative performance of their past and active funds. Further, PitchBook Benchmarks will be available in both PDF and XLS formats, enabling users to reconstruct or export our data to better suit their custom benchmarking needs.
