Abstract and Keywords

This article takes a look at the development of listed private equity funds and the empirical data that shows the performance of the asset class. It shows that while the idea of listed private equity is not new, it is still relatively unfamiliar to academics and investors alike. It identifies some of the challenges posed by traditional private equity, and then demonstrates how listed private equity deals with—and somehow resolves—some limitations. This article also discusses asset allocation, investment activities in listed private equity, and private equity indices.

Keywords: listed private equity funds, asset class, performance, traditional private equity, asset allocation, investment activities, private equity indices
