Research Methodology

Given the general tendency of the Buyout Community to keep (performance) information on individual buyout investments confidential, it has become one of the guiding principles for our research to work with anonymous information to the extent possible and to never disclose any form of information that would allow for the identification of individual buyouts, their performance, or the investors. Consequently, any publication results from our analyses of the INSEAD-HEC Buyout Database present information on buyouts in an aggregate fashion only, as averages of at least five individual investments per category.
