In order to obtain the PhD degree, Rasmus Jørgensen has submitted his thesis entitled: Essays on Empirical Asset Pricing and Private Equity

Rasmus Jørgensen

The thesis applies methods from empirical asset pricing to study the payoffs of non-traded
assets, specifically private equity funds, relative to the payoffs of public market assets. Assessing
the risk and return characteristics of private equity funds presents unique challenges due to the
absence of quoted market prices and consequential lack of return data. This thesis addresses some
of these challenges.
