Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity & Venture Capital, Q1 2018

Q1 2018 is the first quarter since Q3 2016 in which less than $100bn in capital commitments was secured, and saw the fewest funds closed in any quarter over a five-year period. Despite the record number of funds in market at the beginning of Q2, competition for investor capital remains fierce, particularly at the top end of the industry with the launch of two mega funds in Q1. The quarter also saw an increase in buyout and venture capital deal value, but recorded the lowest quarterly number of buyout exits since 2010.
