Comprised of 40 to 75 public companies, the GLPE Index provides diversified exposure to private companies that are owned and managed by private equity firms.
Rather than use simple market cap weightings, the GLPE Index methodology adjusts market capitalization with a purity score to emphasize firms that pursue the private equity business model - buying private companies, enhancing them over 7-10 years, and then selling them. Firms such as alternative asset managers, holding companies, and investment banks, which have limited direct ownership of private companies, would receive a lower purity score.
