Preqin Quarterly Updates

Q4 2022

Preqin Quarterly Updates Q4 2022

There were significant geopolitical and macroeconomic factors affecting private capital asset classes throughout 2022, from rising inflation and interest rates to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In our quarterly updates for Q4 2022 we explore how rising energy prices have affected natural resources and infrastructure performance, and assess the mixed picture for fundraising in private debt, private equity, and real estate, among other trends within private capital markets and hedge funds.

Private equity

Private equity deal-making and fundraising picked up in Q4 2022, despite higher financing costs and macroeconomic headwinds.

Venture capital

Venture capital activity slowed through Q4 2022 due to industry-wide risk averse sentiment. VC will continue to adjust while portfolio valuations take time to mirror the declines in public markets.

Private debt

As fundraising reached all-time highs in 2022, Q4 rounded off a strong year for private debt. The continued demand for private debt shows that interest in the asset class remains resilient and is, in fact, growing.

Hedge funds

Hedge funds benefited from market momentum to experience their first positive quarter for the year at the close of 2022.

Real estate

Real estate activity could pick up in 2023, as rising rates lead to price adjustment. Managers and investors are likely to position themselves in advance of a potential recovery.


While fundraising reached record levels in 2022, Q4 ended on a subdued note. Yet ongoing inflation and economic uncertainty continue to underpin the attractiveness of defensive infrastructure assets.

Natural resources

Record high returns and cash distributions could draw more investors back to natural resources.
