A visual breakdown of global PE activity in 2015 [datagraphic]
January 11, 2016
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be publishing year-end datagraphics to recap global private equity, venture capital and M&A activity in 2015.
First up is our PE summary, as investors worldwide found success on the fundraising trail with a record 85.1% of vehicles reaching or beating their initial fundraising targets. Deal flow was relatively steady throughout the year (4Q numbers will undoubtedly grow as deal announcements roll in), and capital invested numbers were healthy. Sustained strong exit activity remained one of the notable stories of 2015, with more than a half trillion dollars netted in total exit value.
For a complete breakdown of PE activity last year, check out the datagraphic below.
