The BVCA Research team compiles and publishes the benchmark investment activity and performance data each year for the UK private equity and venture capital industry. For this, data is collected from all of our GP members on their aggregate investment activity and fund performance and is used to produce the most comprehensive overview of the UK’s private equity and venture capital markets available. These statistics are the pre-eminent sources of data on the industry in the UK and are of huge benefit to practitioners and investors.
The BVCA, in conjunction with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Capital Dynamics, publishes the Performance Measurement Survey each year which compares private equity and venture capital's performance with other asset classes over different time periods. The survey captures the performance of UK managed funds, including independent funds, venture capital investments and MBOs, representing a vast majority of the UK PE industry and making the dataset and analysis rich and robust.
