Top Investor Tuesday — U.S. West Coast-based Private Equity Firms
September 08, 2015
PE investors headquartered on the U.S. West Coast completed a decade-high 603 deals in 2014, according to the PitchBook Platform, and this year is well on pace to break that record. Interestingly, despite being neighbors with Silicon Valley's tech scene, West Coast-based firms haven't been flocking to IT; in fact, the sector's share of activity has dropped marginally but steadily for four straight years. On the other hand, B2B has been consistently rising—up from 26% of deals in 2010 to 37% this year to date. 44 investors HQ'd in the region have closed a fund since the start of 2014.
