ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1093/rof/rfac037||Abstract:||Mutual fund families set and report values of their private startup holdings, which affect the fund net asset value (NAV) at which investors buy/sell fund shares. We test three hypotheses related to the valuation practice: (i) information cost/access, (ii) litigation risk, and (iii) strategic NAV management. Consistent with (i), families with larger PE holdings and/or stronger information access update valuations more frequently in the absence of public information releases, their updates co-move less with other families, and their fund returns jump less at follow-on financings. We find no support for hypotheses (ii) or (iii). We also find that high-PE-exposure funds are subject to greater financial fragility.||Source Title:||American Finance Association Conference||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/227225||ISSN:||1572-3097
