Podcast: How to Compare Buyout Funds — to Each Other and Public Markets

Listen to Working Capital Conversations: Leading thinkers, practitioners and experts discuss the ideas that drive global business.

Several significant questions around buyout funds and managers have often included:

  1. How do buyout funds compare – not just to each other – but to the public markets?
  2. Can LPs properly judge GPs based on performance quartiles?
  3. How can we properly measure the capital risk of buyout funds?

New research from Peracs’ Oliver Gottschalg sheds light on all of these questions and more.

Dr. Gottschalg is Head of Research at Peracs, a specialized advisory firm providing advanced private equity fund due diligence and benchmarking services. He also is part of the Strategy Department at the HEC School of Management in Paris; he serves as HEC’s Academic Dean for the TRIUM Global Executive MBA Program.
