Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity & Venture Capital, Q3 2019
Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity & Venture Capital, Q3 2019 provides the latest data on fundraising, funds in market, investors, deals and performance & dry powder.
We find appetite for private equity remains strong in Q3 2019, with funds securing an aggregate of $163bn in the quarter. However, only 260 funds closed in the quarter, a five-year low. This means that capital continues to concentrate in the hands of a small number of large funds, and could indicate investor caution in this uncertain market.
The report also features exclusive comment from George Salapa, Co-Founder at bardicredit GmbH, on security tokenization in private markets.
