Conventional wisdom used to tell us that the best way for LPs to predict future returns was to examine past performance. Just find the best performing funds and stick with those managers. However, recent history, especially the years since the 2008 financial crisis, has put most conventional wisdom in doubt. LPs need to know what to expect in the wake of recent record high distributions and are seeking reliable predictive methodologies.
This issue of Front Line examines this difficult and persistent question. Specifically, it looks at distribution assessment, from a historical perspective, as a method of predicting, or at least anticipating future distributions. Pevara data enables such analyses, among many others, and can provide LPs with the needed insight for better, more informed decision-making.
