Private equity fundraising continued the brisk pace set throughout 2013, as 74 funds closed on $39 billion in commitments in 1Q 2014, data from PitchBook’s upcoming 2Q 2014 U.S. PE Breakdown show.

But if the first quarter is any indication, 2014 could be another banner year for fundraising in private equity.
