Prime Unicorn Index

The World’s First Unicorn Tracking Index

The Prime Unicorn Index, created in August 2017, is a modified market cap price return index that measures the share price performance of U.S. private companies valued at $1 billion or more. The Prime Unicorn Index is a leading benchmark targeting and tracking U.S.-based unicorns. Company eligibility and price inputs are derived from disclosed, hard to find corporate filings and the index calculation model is based on actual or derived prices of preferred stock and common stock. The index provides empirical data for tracking today’s private capital markets.

Private Placement Disclosure:

ClearList warns that investments in private, unregistered securities involves a high level of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and should only be considered a long-term investment. Before deciding to invest, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities, including on the ClearList LLC Alternative Trading System. There is also no guarantee that any private placement will be publicly listed through a direct listing or Initial Public Offering. You should be aware that each investment also carries its own specific risks and that you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment including obtaining additional information, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice.
