Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity & Venture Capital, Q2 2019
What to make of the private equity industry in Q2 2019? By most markers, it seems to have been a worrying period of decline – fundraising has well and truly withdrawn from the heights reached in 2017 and much of 2018, while both the buyout and venture capital deals markets have recorded fewer transactions and lower values in the first half of the year.
But investor appetite remains strong, and fund managers are upbeat about the prospects for the asset class in the coming quarters. In this Q2 2019 edition of the Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity & Venture Capital, we present the latest data on fundraising, funds in market, buyout and venture capital deals, investors and performance in the industry. In addition, industry placement agent Capstone Partners takes us through the trials and tribulations of the fundraising process.
All of the data in this report is also available to download in Excel format.
