Evidenced by the data below, it is clear that historically times of crisis, like the current global pandemic and recession we find ourselves in, are the best times to invest in pe. Over the last 20 years, the best performing vintages have been those from ’01 post.com bubble crisis and ’08 post global financial crisis as you can see on the charts with respect to multiples on invested capital and in terms of internal rate of returns. These era vintages have allowed investors to find attractive value at depressed prices. While the timing is opportune, a critical consideration is manager selection, and frankly not all funds are created equal. Manager performance dispersion is real and significant, especially when it comes to private equity and venture capital. As you can see on the chart where venture capital and global private equity and the dispersions in performance between top and bottom quartile managers. In this current environment asset raising has posed challenges, but clearly not necessarily for institutional managers. Their longevity and historical success in the space, ability to deploy and access capital quickly, along with deep networks of experts and deal flow, has continued to give established fund managers continued growth potential and the ability to take advantage of the opportunity set. GPs and LPs alike agree the opportunity set is vast, especially distressed, sector specific & debt, as the graph illustrates.
