Preqin is very flexible and willing to work with researchers. The team assisted with specific custom extracts from the Preqin database. The data was clean and consistent, and the ability to conduct meetings with Preqin research staff - in which they provided early feedback to my emerging findings - was really appreciated.

It is very difficult to access information on realized and unrealized performance of private equity funds on a worldwide scale.

Preqin not only provided the data, but also supported us in understanding how the data was collected and how the variables in the dataset had to be interpreted.
