European private equity returns outperform Stoxx 600 across all but three-year time horizon

For the period ending 30 June 2012, European private equity performance showed positive returns across all investment horizons and moved in a positive trajectory in the one-year, three-year and ten-year time horizons, compared to December 2011, according to Thomson Reuters.

Venture capital fund returns in the one-year time horizon moved in a negative direction, registering a 4.7 percentage point decrease from December 2011 to 0.6 per cent. Venture capital funds in the longer-term time horizons moved in a positive direction, with slight increases (all under one per cent) from December last year.
 
Buyout funds saw returns across all investment horizons hold positive. In the buyouts category, small, medium and large buyout funds in the 20-year time horizon continued to drive performance, with double-digit performance figures.
 
The “all private equity” returns outperformed the FTSE 100 across all except the one and three-year time horizons, for the period ending 30 June 2012. Compared to the Stoxx 600 Index, the “all private equity” returns outperformed the public markets across all but the three-year time horizon.
 
The Private Equity Performance Index is based on the latest quarterly statistics from Thomson Reuters' private Equity Performance Database analysing the cash flows and returns for over 1,395 European venture capital and private equity partnerships with a capitalisation of EUR332.9bn.
