Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity, Q1 2015

The number of funds to reach a final close in Q1 2015 was relatively low at 166, but the aggregate $104bn that was secured by these vehicles is high and indicates the average final size of private equity funds is on an upward trend. As fund managers continue to achieve successful fundraises, the amount of private equity dry powder globally continues to climb to new heights, standing at a record $1.24tn at the end of March 2015. LPs have largely maintained a positive outlook on private equity, with 92% of investors surveyed by Preqin in December 2014 stating that their private equity fund investments have met or exceeded expectations.
