Funds Give WeWork Valuations the Ax
As the privately held coworking company struggles, funds have trimmed their views of what it, Airbnb, and other "unicorns" are worth.
What happens at a mutual fund when one of its private-investment "unicorns" comes crashing down?
The past few years have seen a boom in private-investment markets. During this period, many so-called unicorns--private companies valued at over $1 billion--have had their valuations moved, as they delayed going public longer than historically has been the case. (At that level, those still-private stocks would skip small-cap status once public and go straight into the mid-cap universe.)
