PitchBook's 2019 Annual Global League Tables is the comprehensive ranking of private equity and venture capital activity worldwide for the full year. 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: Due to investor feedback regarding two distinct units' work on different deals, an update was made on February 14, 2020 to the Global League Tables. Another update was made on February 19, 2020, to remove an erroneously duplicated table, and another update the following day to augment some tables. On February 24, 2020, a client's name was updated at their request.
