For this, data is collected from all of our GP members on their aggregate fund performance and is used to produce the most comprehensive overview of the UK’s private equity and venture capital markets available. 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.

The BVCA – The British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association – in conjunction with PwC is pleased to publish the summary analysis of the 2019 Performance Measurement Survey. The Survey covers the performance of ‘independent’ UK venture capital and private equity funds, being funds raised from external investors and managed from the UK.
For this year’s survey we had 117 responses, out of 154 eligible GPs (76% response rate). In the report we cover 813 UK managed funds by BVCA members, including UK and non-UK venture capital and private equity investments. The results are provided net of fees and costs, including a provision for carried interest where appropriate.
Venture capital and private equity is a long-term asset class. As such, the since-inception return metric most appropriately reflects the performance of venture capital and private equity since it measures the performance from the start of a fund, rather than just recent years. When comparing venture capital and private equity with other asset classes, emphasis should be places on the longer-term results rather than the shorter-term measures.
