Top Investor Tuesday — Most Active Private Equity Firms in Education/Training
November 03, 2015
PE investors completed a decade record 108 deals in the global education/training sector last year, according to the PitchBook Platform, but this year will likely fall short of that pace. A decline in U.S.-based activity has been noticeable when looking at both enterprise- and consumer-focused companies, though numbers in Europe, Canada and emerging markets have been holding steady. U.S. businesses have garnered less than 40% of 2015's completed transactions in the education/training space, a low mark over the past 10 years. Of the 337 PE investors active in the sector since 2010, 159 have closed at least one deal within the past two years.
