Private Equity Spotlight - August 2015
In this month’s Private Equity Spotlight, we examine whether the size of a buyout fund has any significant impact on returns, looking at horizon IRR data, the relationship between fund size and quartile rankings, and league tables of the most consistent performing buyout fund managers split by fund size; we ask the question: does size really matter? Also this month, we provide a round-up of exclusive news stories surrounding the growing private equity secondary market and look at secondaries fundraising in H1 2015. Plus, we turn the spotlight on Latin America-focused private equity fundraising, Asia-based LPs, venture capital-backed IPOs and follow-ons, and add-on buyout deals. Also, we provide details of upcoming private equity conferences around the world and available discount codes.
