PitchBook's 1Q 2019 Global League Tables, co-sponsored by Affinity, is the comprehensive ranking of private equity and venture capital activity worldwide for the full quarter. The tables detail top investors by region, firm headquarters, AUM and more, as well as the most active law firms and acquirers of PE-backed and VC-backed companies. In addition, there are multiple tables detailing which service providers are most active in a given deal type, such as the law firms that most frequently service buyouts.
Report highlights include:
- Top PE and VC investors by deal location
- Most active investment banks by region
- Rankings of the top law firms by deal types
Note: This edition was updated on the day of release, May 17, due to an older ranking being erroneously included. It was updated again on May 30 to add in a law firm that had not been included, erroneously, and once more on June 4 and June 12 due to naming conventions and additional buyouts being discovered.
