Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity, Q3 2013

Following the previous quarter’s strong fundraising levels, when the greatest quarterly amount of aggregate capital was raised since Q4 2008, figures for private equity funds in Q3 2013 have seen a slight decline, with 187 vehicles reaching a final close, garnering an aggregate $89bn in capital commitments.
