Returns, commodities, unicorns, and more: Introducing our Global Markets Snapshot

2022 got off to a wild start in the markets, with the S&P falling 8% through February, energy markets surging, and rocky post-IPO performance for venture-backed companies. The rapidly evolving conflict in Ukraine has increased market volatility around the world, putting stress on corporate bond spreads, and commodity prices have continued to rise.

PitchBook’s new Global Markets Snapshot breaks down a month of trends in the equity, debt, and commodities markets, tracking returns across a range of indices and sectors. It also includes private markets activity, including major deals, PE- and VC-backed listings, and unicorn creation by region.
