Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity, Q3 2014

The third quarter of 2014 saw 199 private equity funds reach a final close, raising $80bn in aggregate capital, representing 21% fewer vehicles and a significant 44% decrease in capital commitments compared to the previous quarter. However, the relatively low number of funds means that the average fund size of $402mn is particularly high. Investors seem to be more inclined to commit capital to the larger, more established private equity fund managers, and these statistics serve as evidence of continuation of the trend seen in the fundraising market last year.
