As between you and Grain, the Site, and all Content, information, products and services available on or through the Site, and the hardware and software underlying the Site, is the property of Grain and its applicable affiliates, content licensors and contractors and unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing between you and Grain, may only be used for your personal, non-commercial educational purposes. None of the information contained on the Site is intended to be reproduced or redistributed in any manner. Except as expressly authorized in these Terms, you may not use, store, modify, reproduce, display, publish, distribute, transmit, sell, transfer, create derivative works of, publicly perform or otherwise exploit any Content or information available on or through the Site, in whole or in part, whether by electronic or other means, without our prior written consent.

All other trademarks, service marks and company names and logos appearing on the Site are the property of their respective owners.

Third party recognitions described herein (the “Recognitions”) were prepared by third parties using data, including but not limited to Fund performance data gathered through surveys, databases, and other sources. Certain other award winners may have been chosen by an open “peer review system” where by readers of certain publications were invited to elect a “best in class” in a series of categories via online survey, and nominated firms and their affiliates may not be excluded from voting for themselves in the process. Award nominees for certain awards may be required to apply for nomination, which may include a participation fee.

The Recognitions do not include information on all applicable Funds available for investment or all vintages of such Funds and therefore are necessarily incomplete. In particular, the Recognitions do not include the results of Funds that do not meet the specified investment strategy or other specified criteria, or that were raised prior to or subsequent to the cut-off dates specified in the criteria for such Recognitions. Inclusion of such Funds could materially affect the relative positioning of the private equity firms shown in the Recognitions. In addition, the Recognitions make certain assumptions and weightings, and other assumptions or weightings could lead to materially different results. Because the methodologies of the Recognitions are proprietary, it is not possible to assess the universe of private funds included, including an assessment of whether such funds have investment programs or risk/return profiles similar to that of the funds managed by such firm. Use of other methodologies might lead to a private equity fund or firm being ranked in a materially different position. In addition, any Recognition that represents an aggregate performance of any private equity firm’s funds, including but not limited to the Recognitions shown on the Site, is not necessarily indicative of any one investor’s experience. For the foregoing and other reasons, the Recognitions may not be an appropriate measure by which to assess the performance of any private equity fund.
