Return Data Galore: All Your Favorite Links

Looking for return data? We have return data. Or rather, we have links to return data.

Click “read more” below to get links to return data from nine pensions. The editorial team of sister publication Buyouts Magazine has been hard at work compiling all these numbers into a spreadsheet for our annual look at industry returns. Altogether our database has 443 U.S. and international buyout funds and turnaround/distressed funds spanning vintage years 1981 to 2005. Of those, we have investment multiples for 366 of them. And the quartile dividing lines? These probably won’t come as a big surprise for dedicated students of industry performance. It takes an investment multiple of 2 to crach the top quartile, 1.5 is median and 1.2 marks the bottom quartile.
