Vintage IRRs Reveals Buyout’s Buoyancy


May 7, 2015

Preqin recently analyzed the returns of buyout vehicles with vintage years between 1996 and 2012, comparing them to the PE industry as a whole, and found that buyouts have “mostly outperformed” (11 of the 17 vintage years buyouts outperformed). The metric was the median net IRR. The analysts at Preqin are optimistic that buyouts will continue to outperform other PE flavors, as the lagging buyout vintages from 2011 and 2012 mature.
