Download report
As a swelling number of private capital managers begin to specialize their investment strategy, PitchBook has created a new metric to quantify these investing styles. The Manager Style Score can be used to assess concentration in past investments by industry or by geography. This analysis, which explains the methodology behind our new metric, uses real-world examples to help visualize how well-known managers stack up against each other. While the Manager Style Score is not a ranking of quality or expected performance, it can be useful to compare managers’ investing styles and if their investment style has drifted over time.
