PitchBook Publishes Fundraising and Capital Overhang Report
January 22, 2014
PitchBook has released its 1H 2014 PE & VC Fundraising & Capital Overhang Report, which examines fundraising for all types of private equity and venture capital funds, including buyout, growth, restructuring, energy and mezzanine. This comprehensive report also looks at the amount of dry powder PE and VC investors currently have available to invest. Trends are examined through several lenses, such as fund size, vintage year and time spent fundraising.
Highlights from this report include:
• PE fundraising increases for a third consecutive year
• PE fund sizes swell to a post-crisis high in 2013
• VCs closed more funds in 2013 but raised less capital
• The average VC fund size hit a decade-low in 2013
