Request #20-12
  Closed

To whom it may concern,
 
My name is Ruying Gao, and I am a research fellow at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. I am reaching out on behalf of the pension research team led by Professor Juliane Begenau at Stanford GSB and Professor Emil Siriwardane at Harvard Business School. I am writing to ask for your help with a public records request.
 
Could you kindly send us Commitment Date, Commitment Amount, Contribution Amount, Distribution Amount, and Value as of 2017 Q2 of your private equity/venture capital funds? This list should include all such partnerships, i.e. private equity, venture capital, distressed debt, mezzanine, fund of funds, real estate, natural resources, and private debt investments. It should preferably be reported in U.S. dollars.
 
In addition, for each of the funds, could you please indicate whether you have also co-investment arrangements or side-car deals (Y/N) for the fund and whether the reported amounts include (Y/N) those arrangements.
 
We were extremely grateful to receive this data, as it is very helpful for our research.  To aid in the collection, we have created an Excel template for your convenience. Because I can't attach the file here, the design is specified below. Please let us know if you would like the template sent through an email.

Column A - Fund Name
Column B - Commitment Date
Column C - Commitment Amount
Column D - Contribution Amount
Column E - Distribution Amount
Column F - Remaining Value
Column G - Co-invest or Sidecar Deal (Y/N)
Column H - Do columns [A]-[D] include cashflows from co-investment or sidecar? (Y/N)


Best wishes,
Ruying
