# Private Equity Dashboards

### Metrics usually tracked for Private Equity

Private Equity is an important Asset Class for our customers. Typically the following metrics are tracked

#### Internal Rate of Return (IRR)

IRR, the performance metric of choice in the PE industry, represents the discount rate that renders the net present value (NPV) of a series of investments zero. IRR reflects the performance of a private equity fund by taking into account the size and timing of its cash flows (capital calls and distributions) and its net asset value at the time of the calculation.

#### Distributed to Paid-In Ratio (DPI)

It represents the amount of capital returned to investors divided by a fund’s capital calls at the valuation date. DPI reflects the realized, cash-on- cash returns generated by its investments at the valuation date

#### Total Value to Paid-In Ratio (TVPI)

It represents the amount of capital returned to investors + a fair value of the stakes that the fund still holds in its portfolio companies, divided by a fund’s capital calls at the valuation date. TVPI reflects the total (i.e. realized and unrealized) returns generated by its investments at the valuation date

#### Kaplan Schoar Public Market Equivalent (KS-PME)

The Kaplan Schoar PME measures the wealth multiple effect of investing in the PE fund versus the index. It represents the market-adjusted equivalent to the traditional TVPI. A value greater than 1 implies that the fund outperformed the public benchmark

The index used for this analysis is user configurable. It can be any public index (e.g. S&P 500 or EuroStoxx 50), any particular fund or model portfolio or even a blend (e.g. 60% S&P 500 and 40% Barclays Agg)

#### Direct Alpha

Same methodology as KS-PME, except the underperformance/outperformance is expressed as a percentage instead of a multiple
