The quarterly movements of multiples of US LBO funds and major US stock indexes appear to be significantly positively correlated, and this observation is further amplified during the bullish market periods immediately before the markets contracted. US LBO funds exhibit consistently lower volatility of performance relative to the public market indexes. Fund managers need to see two successive quarters of strong and consistent shifts in public markets to reflect it significantly in their TVPIs. The main philosophy is to adjust portfolio values moderately but in line with the indexes, sometimes catching up with sustained strong movements.
