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.
