Using Q1 2017 fundraising data, Leo Peavy from Preqin and David Snow from Privcap discuss private equity fundraising in the first discussion, including the record-breaking capital haul in North America, the rise of what may be the largest private equity fund ever, and some unusual and enormous Asian fundraising efforts that may change the standard definition of private equity.
The Dealmaker Roundup hosts deal experts from Preqin, RSM and Harris Williams to discuss the tepid start to 2017, including the dearth of private equity mega-deals, the relatively weak showing of public-to-private transactions, the slowdown in private equity-backed exits, and the reasons why all three remain bullish about strong deal activity for the remainder of the year.
