PitchBook Analyst Note: Index of Venture-Backed IPOs
Download report
PitchBook's venture analyst team has compiled a research note that presents an index of venture-backed IPOs, providing a set of new tools for evaluating their price performance by a variety of metrics. Importantly, the note has found that VC-backed IPOs, when weighted by market cap, have trailed the market over the long term, but there are additional nuances to consider. For example, smaller IPOs have tended to drive a substantial amount of performance for VC-backed debuts overall. The full note details additional findings, utilizing market-cap-weighted and equal-weighted indices for more thorough comparisons.
