Private Equity Wire – Methodology for Award

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

  1. The fund manager universe included all funds managed by European-domiciled GPs.
  2. All funds in each category were grouped into their respective vintages and ranked on the basis of their net IRR.
  3. For the performance categories, fund vintages from 2013 to 2018 were analysed.
  4. All GPs that had more than one fund ranked among the top performers across these multiple vintages within any category were shortlisted.
  5. For all categories, the minimum fund size was set at $100 million.
  6. 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.
  7. For the fundraising categories, GPs were ranked on the total assets raised in each respective strategy category for 2019 and 2020 vintage funds.
  8. For all categories, the minimum fund size was set at $100 million.
  9. 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.
