Lower Middle Market Weekly Outlook

Good morning, all. Despite some recent headwinds, private equity had a strong start to 2014. According to a report released by Cambridge Associates, the asset class outperformed the public markets in the first quarter. In terms of data: “The firm’s Private Equity Index, comprised of 1,137 funds, returned 3.1% during the quarter, besting the lower-than-2% returns of the Nasdaq Composite index and the S&P 500.” The public markets, however, beat PE in the 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year time frames.

In other news, small business owners are feeling pretty optimistic about the future.
