Public Market Equivalent (PME). Alternative Investment Fund Performance.

Public Market Equivalent (PME) is a methodology designed to compare performance of an alternative investment fund against a public market benchmark. To do so, the historic cash flows into and out of the fund are mirrored by equivalent amounts invested into a public market index. Accordingly, drawdowns into the fund are matched with investments into the public market on the same date and distributions from the fund are matched with withdrawals from the public markets on the same date, based on the valuation of the index at that date. Finally, a comparison is made at the reporting date between the value that is left in the fund versus the value remaining in the public market equivalent.
