New Map Feature Breaks Down Pension Fund Investment by State, Ranks Top Funds by Returns and Allocation
September 17, 2012
Today the Private Equity Growth Capital Council released Private Equity at Work in Your State, an interactive map that, for the first time, aggregates state-by-state information about large public pension plans and their investments in private equity. Private Equity at Work in Your State also includes rankings that show the state and municipal pension funds with the ten best performing private equity portfolios (measured by 10-year return) and largest allocations to private equity (measured by dollar value). The data released by the PEGCC is, for the first time, freely available to the public in one place.
The PEGCC analysis highlights the private equity investments of 75 of the largest state pension plans in the U.S. They manage more than $2.4 trillion in assets and represent nearly 17.8 million active and retired beneficiaries. The private equity holdings of these funds total more than $214 billion. While many state and municipal pension plans publicly release information about their portfolio and investment strategies, Private Equity at Work in Your State is the only place where the information is illustrated by an interactive map on a state-by-state basis. The new pension rankings are also a first.
The map contains additional information about private equity investment in all 50 states, including the number of private equity firms and private equity-backed companies in each state, the number of U.S. jobs supported by those companies and specific examples of private equity-backed companies headquartered in each state.
