  1. Private equity data is based on the PitchBook Benchmarks North America Private Equity Quarterly Return Index as sourced from the PitchBook North America Benchmarks Report as of Q4 2022. The Quarterly Return Index is calculated as the aggregate percentage change in aggregate NAV for the group of funds in the sample, considering contributions and distributions during the quarter. The PitchBook private equity benchmark includes buyout, growth equity, restructuring/turnaround, and diversified PE funds. It does not include venture capital funds.
    S&P 500 data is based on the S&P 500 Total Return Index as sourced from PitchBook. The S&P 500 Total Return Index takes into account both the capital appreciation and the distributed dividends of the S&P 500 index. The Total Return Index assumes that all dividends are reinvested into the index.
  2. The chart above shows the hypothetical net growth of a $25,000 initial investment in each respective index and assumes in each case that dividends are reinvested.
  3. While we anticipate that liquidity will be offered on a quarterly basis, it will be subject to restrictions and will not be guaranteed.
