Every year, Pepperdine University conducts an annual survey of expected rates of return with respect to private companies. A BVWire poll found that 40% of respondents use the survey results for estimating small private-company cost of capital. This year’s survey is now open, and input is sought from anyone involved in the funding of private businesses, including funding providers, recipients, investors, intermediaries, and advisors. The information you provide is confidential. The direct link to the survey is here.
The survey results are used to produce annual Private Capital Markets Report (reports from prior years are available if you click here). The price for the annual report is normally $125, but it’s free if you fill out the survey—plus you’ll get it a week early.
