This edition of US PE Breakdown highlights robust PE dealmaking activity and record-setting fundraising totals. This report looks back at how PE firms pushed further into technology investments and have been pursuing large-scale carveouts. Dealmakers put forth a cautious tone throughout the year but remained fervent buyers, likely due to the pressure to invest freshly raised capital. PE-backed exits and IPOs hit a lull in the year but look to reverse fortune in 2020. Fundraising totals surpassed $300 billion for the first time ever as LPs continue to be drawn to the strategy. This annual edition of our flagship US PE report, which is sponsored by INSIGHT2PROFIT, also spotlights tech-focused PE funds and how the strategy and performance differ from traditional buyout funds.
