The index representing private equity utilizes a modified private market equivalent (mPME) calculation as a way to replicate private investment performance under public market conditions. Index returns represent general market results, assume the reinvestment of dividends and other distributions, and do not reflect deduction for fees, expenses or taxes applicable to an actual investment. An index is unmanaged and not available for direct investment. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
