Methodology

The pre-selection data for the fund manager shortlisted was provided by Bloomberg. Candidates in all categories and asset size groupings were determined as follows:


The fund manager universe included all funds managed by US-headquartered GPs. All funds in each category were grouped into their respective vintages and ranked on the basis of their net IRRs as of the end of May 2023.


For the fundraising categories the fund is actively fundraising. The funds have raised at least 50% of their stated target size, and the vintage years are: 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021. Open-Ended Funds are excluded.


For the performance categories, the fund is actively investing, or harvesting. IRR is reported in the past 48 months ("2019-06-30"). Vintage Years are: 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021], and open-ended funds are excluded.


For the asset band groupings, asset thresholds were based on the respective individual fund sizes – not the overall assets under management of the GP in that category.


For the service provider categories, the nominated firms are based on a widespread survey of more than 500 GPs and other key industry participants.


Nominations for all categories are based on annualized performance over a 12-month period from May 31st, 2022 to May 31st, 2023. Nominations in various award categories are further split by size and strategy as specified in the award name.


Managers will only be considered for selection if they report performance data to Bloomberg. To find out more about this process, please contact: events@privateequitywire.com.
