The BVCA, in association with PwC, publishes the Performance Measurement Survey Report
each year which compares private equity and venture capital's performance with other asset classes over different time periods. The statistics in this report are the results of, an annual survey of fund level cash flows and valuations collected from our members.
The Performance Measurement Survey looks at funds which invest in businesses at all stages of the growth lifecycle – from venture capital funds specialising in start-ups to large buyout funds investing in global corporations. The survey captures the performance of UK managed funds, including independent funds, venture capital investments and management buyouts, representing most of the UK private equity and venture capital industry, making the dataset and analysis rich and robust.
Our full Performance Measurement Survey Report
takes an in depth look at the data, presenting performance by vintage year, fund type and fund focus. We also publish a short highlights paper and accompanying data tables in excel for those who love the detail.
We are pleased to be able to contribute to the wealth of data evidencing the positive performance of UK private capital through this long running study.
