Based on our empirical studies, conventional value attribution analysis in private equity leads to the wrong conclusion 50% of the time and does not sufficiently reveal whether a GP was accretive to LP returns.

Join us for an interactive roundtable  discussion on the weaknesses of the traditional “value bridge” and how they are addressed by the Duff & Phelps Created Value Attribution (CVA) Framework, extensively featured in the recent INSEAD whitepaper, Value Creation 2.0.

Discussion topics include:

  • What the data tell us so far about value creation in private equity
  • How industry convention too often leads to wrong conclusions
  • How quantitative analysis utilizing the CVA Framework can better communicate a GP’s value-add and in turn lead to better, more informed decision-making for LP’s
  • CVA case study highlights
  • Awareness of and adoption by the LP and GP communities
  • ILPA White Paper co-authored by the panelists
  • Academic community recognition of our CVA Framework


  • Bob Clark, Director, Duff & Phelps


  • George Pushner, Ph.D., Director, Duff & Phelps
  • PJ Viscio, Managing Director, Duff & Phelps
