European PE performance positive, says Thomson Reuters

European private equity performance showed positive returns across all investment horizons for the period ending 31 December 2013, according to Thomson Reuters’ Private Equity Performance Index.

One year returns, which are most affected by the current market environment, moved in a positive direction from June 2013, registering a 3.8 percentage point increase to 11.80 per cent.
 
Buyout funds saw positive returns across all investment horizons, with strong double-digit returns in the one, 10 and 20-year time horizons. Medium buyout funds in the 20-year time horizon performed best, with returns of 23.25 per cent. 
 
Venture capital fund returns also held positive, with the shorter 1 and 3-year time horizons performing best.  
 
One year returns moved in a positive direction from June 2013, registering a 0.2 percentage point increase for venture capital funds (2.45 per cent) and a 4.2 percentage point increase for buyout funds (13.04 per cent).
 
While both the FTSE 100 and the Stoxx 600 outperformed the “all private equity” returns in the one, three and five-year time horizons, private equity showed better returns, compared to the public markets, in the longer-term time horizons.
