The Private Equity Wire Awards follow a clear and transparent process. For the GP manager fund performance category, the pre-selected shortlists are based on data provided from Bloomberg. Candidates in all categories and asset size groupings were determined as following methodology: 1) The fund manager universe included all funds managed by US-headquartered GPs. 2)All funds in each category were grouped into their respective vintages and ranked on the basis of their net IRRs as at the end of 2020. 3) For the performance categories, five vintages of funds were analyzed – 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. 4) All GPs that had more than one fund ranked among the top performers across those five vintages were shortlisted for that category. 5) For the asset band groupings, asset thresholds were based on the respective individual fund sizes – not the overall assets under management of the GP in that category. Voting for the eventual winners is then conducted via an extensive online poll of the Private Equity Wire readership over a period of several weeks.
