FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Exchange traded funds: Valued using the market price of the fund as of the consolidated balance sheet dates, March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. Exchange traded funds valued using quoted prices are classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy.
Mutual funds: Valued at the number of shares of the underlying fund multiplied by the closing NAV per share quoted by that fund as of the consolidated balance sheet dates, March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The value of the specific funds the Company has invested in are validated with a sufficient level of observable activity to support classification of the fair value measurement as Level 1 in the fair value hierarchy.
Accrued performance allocations and partnership interests: The Company generally values its investments in accrued performance allocations and partnership interests using the NAV per share equivalent calculated by the investment manager as a practical expedient to determining an fair value. The Company does not categorize within the fair value hierarchy investments where fair value is measured using the NAV per share practical expedient.
Other investments: Investments are accounted for using the measurement alternative to measure at cost adjusted for any impairment and observable price changes. Unrealized gains or losses on other investments are included in investment income (loss) on the consolidated and combined statements of operations.
General Partner notes payable: Valued using the NAV per share equivalent calculated by the investment manager as a practical expedient to determining an independent fair value.
The preceding methods described may produce a fair value calculation that may not be indicative of net realizable value or reflective of future fair values. Furthermore, although the Company believes its valuation methods are appropriate and consistent with other market participants, the use of different methodologies or assumptions to determine the fair value of certain financial instruments could result in a different fair value measurement at the reporting date.
The following table presents assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (in thousands):
The following table presents a rollforward of Level 3 assets at cost adjusted for any impairment and observable price changes (in thousands):
Accrued carried interest allocations, investments in funds, and investments in limited partnership interests in third-party private funds are valued using NAV of the respective vehicle. The following table presents investments carried at fair value using NAV (in thousands):
The Company can redeem its investment in the Company-sponsored open-end fund with a 60-day notice. The Company’s interests in its closed-end funds are not subject to redemption, with distributions to be received through liquidation of underlying investments of the funds. The closed-end funds generally have -to-ten year terms, which may be extended in certain circumstances.
Fair Value Information of Financial Instruments Reported at Cost
The carrying values of cash, accounts receivable, due from and to affiliates, interest payable and accounts payable approximate fair value due to their short-term nature and negligible credit risk. The following table presents the carrying amounts and estimated fair values of financial instruments reported at amortized cost (in thousands):
Fair values of the private notes were estimated by discounting expected future cash outlays at interest rates available to the Company for similar instruments.
