Preqin Quarterly Update: Natural Resources, Q3 2017 Oct 2017
The natural resources fundraising landscape remains challenging in Q3 2017. Fewer funds are reaching a final close than in previous years, with the closure of 18 funds in Q3 2017 representing the lowest quarterly number for nearly a decade. However, investor sentiment towards the asset class is improving in light of recent strong performance, driving an increase in capital secured and helping managers to reach and even exceed their fundraising targets, in spite of the small number of funds closed.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Infrastructure, Q3 2017 Oct 2017
Fundraising for unlisted infrastructure picked up in Q3 2017, with 17 funds securing an aggregate $12bn in capital commitments. Investors’ targeted commitments for future investment in the asset class have increased in comparison to the previous year, and more investors are looking to commit to fewer funds. Large sums of capital raised by mega funds are causing dry powder levels to rise, and with this, asset valuations remain high.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Real Estate, Q3 2017 Oct 2017
Over the past few quarters, real estate fundraising has struggled to remain consistent, and 2017 is on course to see one of the lowest totals in the past five years. The number of funds closed in Q3 was just over half that seen in Q2, and aggregate capital raised in the quarter is following a similar trend of decline. Yet, although fewer funds are closing, the average fund size is growing and strong performance continues to contribute to high levels of investor satisfaction.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity, Q3 2017 Oct 2017
Q3 2017 has seen a slowdown in private equity fundraising compared to the previous quarter. The number of funds closed in Q3 2017 is 22% lower than in Q3 2016, but the aggregate capital raised by these vehicles has risen 43% from the previous year. Investor satisfaction with private equity remains high and, with capital distribution reaching a record high of $488bn as at December 2016, capital continues to flow into the asset class as LPs look to meet allocations. Despite exit activity slowing in recent quarters, heightened asset valuations are likely to continue to drive such activity going forward.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Debt, Q3 2017 Oct 2017
Twenty-four private debt funds closed in Q3 2017, securing an aggregate $23bn in global capital commitments, with this figure expected to rise as more data becomes available. The average size of funds closed has more than doubled from this time last year. Direct lenders once again closed the most funds, and secured the most capital among private debt fund types. Dry powder has risen to near-record levels and, despite the typical concerns about fund managers’ ability to deploy existing reserves, managers are continuing to put capital to work in sponsored transactions.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Hedge Funds, Q3 2017 Oct 2017
Despite performance concerns dominating the hedge fund industry narrative in recent years, 2017 has been a story of resurgence thus far, as three more months of positive performance in the third quarter of the year have driven the Preqin All-Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark to surpass the annual return seen in 2016, with time to spare. In addition to the latest performance data for Q3, this quarterly update details the largest fund managers in the industry and looks at the make-up of funds launched and investors’ latest fund searches and mandates.
