Please note that we will maintain these rankings as evergreen so as to preserve a historical record of this quarter's activity—we will note if an update should have to occur due to any error on this page as well.
Methodology: For the geographical breakouts, all relevant deal types are included in the underlying deals, e.g., for PE firms, the regional rankings are based on all PE deal types as defined by PitchBook, whereas for VC firms' rankings, all regional rankings and overall tallies are based on all VC deal types as defined by PitchBook. When specific deal types are broken out in rankings, i.e. on the deal types and exits tabs, that is the only exception to all deal types being included and forming the basis of the rankings. Unless otherwise noted, all eligible deals align with existing PitchBook report methodologies, which can be found here. For example, the buyouts ranking for investment banks only considers all PitchBook deal types classified as buyouts, and also aligns with how buyouts are defined in the US PE Breakdown section on that report methodologies page. PE- and VC-backed acquisitions differ from buyouts in that they are acquisitions made by companies that are currently either PE-backed or VC-backed.
