Prime Unicorn Index

A modified market cap price return index that measures the share price performance of U.S. private companies valued at $1 billion or more.

Our Methodology

The rules for component eligibility, index composition, calculation, and maintenance are based on the Prime Unicorn Index Methodology©. The index universe includes U.S. private companies with market valuations that are equal to or greater than $1 billion. Component eligibility and price inputs are derived from publicly available information. The index calculation model is based on actual and calculated prices of preferred stock and common stock, which are validated by the index operations team. Corporate actions, such as bankruptcies, stock splits, reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, and spinoffs are monitored on a daily basis. Index values are calculated for each day, but distributed on a weekly basis. The index is reviewed and reconstituted on a quarterly basis. The Prime Unicorn Index was designed and developed by Lagniappe Labs and Level ETF Ventures’ Prime Indexes group.
