Time is of the essence: assessing time-to-liquidity risks
Average times-to-liquidity are a useful bench-marking instrument for fund investors. The time-to-liquidity of fully realized funds ranges from 4.1 years for mezzanine funds to 5.6 years for early-stage venture capital funds. These elements are interesting in anticipating the theoretical time-exposure of investors. However, they might aggregate significant variations from one vintage year to another.
