DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Red Rocks Capital announced today that its Global Listed Private Equity
(GLPE) Index advanced during Q1-2019, up 14.59%. The gain was driven by
strong private company growth along with attractive listed private
equity (LPE) public valuations.
During the 10 years since the Great Financial Crisis, the GLPE Index has
outperformed global all-cap and small-mid cap public equities, global
REITs, and global hedge funds, with annualized returns of 17.22%.
“Unlike indices that attempt to replicate the performance of private
equity, the GLPE index is comprised of global listed private equity
companies that each manage a portfolio of private companies, enhancing
them over time, and eventually selling them or taking them public after
7-10 years,” said Richard Baker, Red Rocks GLPE Index Product Manager.
“The GLPE Index provides access to a different source of returns from
public equities – access to fast growing small- and mid-sized private
companies, backed by the balance sheets and know-how of global listed
private equity firms.”
