PE fund returns data continues to pour in, giving us a clearer picture of COVID’s impact in 2020. Finalized Q3 2020 data shows a 13.3% return, on a global basis, according to PitchBook’s just-released Global Fund Performance Report. That surpasses the 9.1% return in Q2, and between those two quarters, PE funds saw appreciation that more than made up for the -8% loss in the first quarter.
