2019 Yearbook: Australian Private Equity & Venture Capital Activity Report
Preqin is proud to have partnered with the Australian Investment Council to produce the 2019 Yearbook Report on Australian Private Equity & Venture Capital Activity.
The report covers activity data on funds, deals and exits across the private equity & venture capital industry in Australia, based on data contained in the Preqin data platform, Pro, as well as on-the-ground information collected by both Preqin and the Australian Investment Council.
As wider global economic and political tensions combine with testing circumstances closer to home, Australia faces another interesting and somewhat challenging year in 2019. Despite this, unemployment remains low and the domestic economy continues to grow, fostering a positive environment for the private equity & venture capital market – fundraising hit a record high in 2018, and total investment activity increased significantly from 2017. Now standing at just over AUD 30bn in size, the Australian private equity & venture capital industry is a force to be reckoned with.
