Preqin Quarterly Update: Real Estate, Q1 2018 Apr 2018
Private real estate fundraising has had a near-record quarter in Q1 with $33bn raised, defying the concerns highlighted in our investor and fund manager interviews at the end of 2017. While this does signify the depth of opportunities that participants feel are available in the market, it is notable that this quarter has been one of the weakest in terms of the number of products that have been raise, with just 47 funds closed.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Natural Resources, Q1 2018 Apr 2018
Fewer unlisted natural resources funds held a final close in 2017 compared to the previous year, with just 109 funds closing, down from 128 funds in 2016. However, investors are more positive about the asset class than they were a year ago. Just 9% of investors held a negative general perception of the asset class when interviewed in December 2017. This positive sentiment has followed a period of improving stabilization of commodity prices, a reminder that the prospects for future attractive investment opportunities remain inextricably tied to commodity price fluctuations.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Debt, Q1 2018 Apr 2018
Although fundraising in Q1 2018 is off to a slow start, investor appetite for private debt remains strong, with 98% of institutional investors planning to increase or maintain their private debt allocations in the long term. This bodes well for the 350 private debt funds currently in market that are seeking an aggregate $160bn, especially as 57% of investors plan to invest $50mn or more into the asset class over 2018.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Infrastructure, Q1 2018 Apr 2018
Infrastructure fundraising has slowed in Q1 2018, halting the momentum of a record year in 2017. However, the funds able to close achieved an average of 120% of their target, suggesting that investor demand is strong – particularly for established managers. Infrastructure transactions were also down in Q1, but average deal size has swelled to $439mn. The 178 funds in market at the start of Q2 have already raised $52bn in interim closes, suggestive of a healthy fundraising environment ahead.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity, Q1 2018 Apr 2018
Q1 2018 is the first quarter since Q3 2016 in which less than $100bn in capital commitments was secured, and saw the fewest funds closed in any quarter over a five-year period. Despite the record number of funds in market at the beginning of Q2, competition for investor capital remains fierce, particularly at the top end of the industry with the launch of two mega funds in Q1. The quarter also saw an increase in buyout and venture capital deal value, but recorded the lowest quarterly number of buyout exits since 2010.

Preqin Quarterly Update: Hedge Funds, Q1 2018 Apr 2018
2018 started strongly for the hedge fund asset class, recording the 15th consecutive month of positive performance in January (+1.92%). However, many hedge funds were unable to capitalize on growing market volatility over the quarter and February saw losses of 0.92% as equity markets globally experienced large fluctuations. Furthermore, we continue to see investors looking to position themselves more defensively, with macro strategies particularly highly sought among those investors looking for funds over 2018.
