Benchmarking Private Equity/Venture Capital Investments: How LPs Really Judge GPs
Join our panel of allocators and Backstop Sr. Product Manager Ben Crawford as they discuss:

  • How LPs use performance benchmarking and quantitative analysis to pick and monitor managers as well as to consider potential follow-on investments.
  • How LPs grapple with the challenge of considering and selecting emerging managers.

  • The relative merits of new “Gross-to-LP” and “Deal-level” performance data sets vs. more traditional “Net-to-LP” performance data sources.

  • Where PME methodologies and attribution analyses fit into the LP’s toolkit

  • How LPs use benchmark data provided by GPs, and what happens when they diverge with other benchmarks

  • Whether LPs think differently about benchmarking the performance of VC, PE, Real Estate, and Hedge Fund investments

  • And much, much more!

Enjoy our workshop for an up-close training session and stay for one-on-one questions with our experts. Follow this up with an industry panel and networking over complimentary cocktails!
