Private markets are outperforming other markets, despite the overall choppy and declining market conditions, according to a report by Forge, a private securities marketplace. The Forge Private Market Index reveals that private firms are faring better than popular market indices such as the QQQ, IWM, and IPO indecis.
The QQQ, also known as triple Qs, is an exchange-traded fund that tracks the performance of top NASDAQ-listed companies. On the other hand, the IWM is an ETF that monitors the Russell 2000, while the IPO is an ETF that follows recently listed firms.
Although Forge’s analysis focuses on the past three months, a more comprehensive view is offered on their website, where data from 2019 shows a slightly closer competition. While Forge Private Markets surpass the IPO and IWM, the QQQ stands toe-to-toe with the private markets. However, it is important to note that investors are inclined to make decisions based on future prospects rather than past performance.
