With the first half of the year at a close, PitchBook recently released its 2H 2014 U.S. PE & VC Fundraising and Capital Overhang Report. The report examines PE and VC fundraising activity and trends, as well as the current amount of dry powder and other stats. In today’s video, PitchBook TV takes a look at some of the top highlights from the report.
PE fundraising in the U.S. is on track to turn in another strong year for 2014.
The current U.S. private equity overhang is $486 billion, or roughly 3 years of deal flow.
Funds-of-funds in the U.S. continue to struggle to raise the same level of capital as a few years ago.
U.S. venture capital fundraising has been very strong in 2014 and has already nearly equaled what was raised in 2013.
The amount of U.S. venture dry powder continues to decline as it reached a 10-year low of $58 billion.
