The PitchBook Platform currently tracks over $66 billion in mandated private equity capital worldwide. After combing through the data, we came up with a quick look at some key fundraising opportunities for the first quarter of 2015. (For a comprehensive breakdown of the current fundraising scene, check out our 2015 Annual U.S. PE Breakdown.)
The Regents of the University of California expect between $300 million and $800 million in new private equity commitments within the year.
Boston investment advisor Meketa Investment Group is projecting PE fund commitments amounting to as much as $850 million within the next 12 months.
Allianz Capital Partners, a German fund-of-funds, is targeting as many as 20 private equity commitments totaling between $1 billion and $1.3 billion during 2015.
And that doesn't even include some of the biggest LPs, such as the Public Sector Pension Investment Board and Oregon Investment Council. The former is seeking over $4.2 billion in investments from April 2014.
