A trusted, widely adopted and informed benchmark offering for private investments
IHS Markit has entered into a strategic partnership with Cambridge Associates, a global investment firm with a global presence in private capital markets and a leading provider of private investment benchmarks. As part of the partnership, IHS Markit will have exclusive rights to distribute the Cambridge Associates benchmarks in aggregated and anonymous form via digital formats to end users, data redistributors and reporting and analytics platforms. Cambridge Associates will remain responsible for fund manager relations, data collection, benchmark development and production, as well as managing the security and confidentiality of its datasets.
Private investment benchmarks can be leveraged for a variety of uses including;
- Research, capital raising, performance measurement, risk management, valuation, and asset allocation.
- For General Partners (GPs) and Limited Partners (LPs) specifically, the benchmarks can help identify investment opportunities, support the fund manager selection process, and provide data-driven intelligence to improve portfolio returns and manage risks.
