We leverage our extensive proprietary non-marketable alternative assets database to meet the industry's need for reliable, verifiable, and timely benchmark statistics with two widely used indices and a leading benchmarking tool.
We compile the performance results for more than three-fourths of institutional-quality venture capital assets and nearly two-thirds of leveraged buyouts, subordinated debt, and special situations partnerships to publish Cambridge Associates U.S. Venture Capital Index® and the Cambridge Associates Private Equity Index®. Widely considered the industry standard, these indices report preliminary returns in Barron's Market Laboratory section and quarterly returns approximately 12-15 weeks following the close of each quarter.
We developed the Private Equity Benchmark Calculator to enable investors to calculate internal rates of return (IRRs) and end-to-end returns for a customized universe of private equity and venture capital assets. With our Benchmark Calculator, users can tailor a benchmark specifically to their private equity program, by employing the tool’s extensive reporting and filtering capabilities to generate aggregate returns on both a fund and underlying company level. For further details on the Private Equity Benchmark Calculator, please contact us to request a demonstration account. The web-based Cambridge Private Portfolio System (CPP System®) complements our non-marketable alternative assets performance reports and allows subscribers to run real-time calculations and create analyses of their alternative assets portfolios.
We adhere to a very strict conflict of interest policy to maintain complete independence from money management firms. As such, we cannot offer the Private Equity Benchmark Calculator to any asset management firm. If you represent a General Partner and you wish to participate in our proprietary database, you will receive a complimentary report of quarterly benchmark statistics, such as this sample report.
