When reporting performance, the funds typically look at the below metrics:

  • MoM – represents the total value relative to the capital invested

    • Investment MoM – realised and unrealised value of a company, divided by the capital invested in the company.

    • Gross MoM - realised and unrealised value of the portfolio, divided by the capital invested in the portfolio

    • Net MoM – Gross MoM adjusted for the fund’s fees and profit sharing

  • IRR – represents the discount rate at which the present value of all the cash flows of an investment is zero.

    • The IRR is generally the preferred performance metric as it takes into account the time value of money

    • For example, even if the return on capital is 40%, the IRR may be 10% as it takes into account the period that the capital was locked

    • The IRR is not always straightforward to calculate
