Duff & Phelps Hosts Private Equity Roundtable on Created Value Attribution

Location 225 Franklin Street, Suite 2100

Boston 02110-2804

Calendar March 23, 2017

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. These issues have been further highlighted in the recent INSEAD whitepaper, Value Creation 2.0 and the ILPA whitepaper Limitations of the Value Bridge and How LPs Can Better Assess Value Creation, which have featured our new attribution methodology and findings. 

Join the Duff & Phelps' Portfolio Valuation practice 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.
