Private market fund performance: Spotlight on first-time and emerging managers

As private market investors seek more diversity, both from investment managers and their underlying strategies, they are increasingly looking to first-time and emerging managers. In our ongoing PitchBook Benchmarks webinar series, we recently examined the historical track record of emerging funds and provided insight into how to identify and assess these nascent managers.

Using data available through PitchBook, our analysts explored topics including:
  • Updates on the latest performance trends in private markets
  • Analysis of historical performance of first-time funds and emerging managers
  • Overviews of current opportunities from first-time funds and emerging managers
