With the first half of the year at a close, PitchBook has released its 2H 2013 Private Equity Fundraising and Capital Overhang Report, powered by data from the PitchBook Platform. The PE report, sponsored by Plante and Moran, examines U.S.-based fundraising for all types of private equity funds, including buyout, growth and mezzanine. The reports also look at the amount of dry powder PE and VC investors currently have. Trends are examined through several lenses, such as fund size, vintage year and time spent fundraising.
Report highlights include:
• Fundraising by year and quarter
• Fundraising by deal size
• Average fund sizes
• Average time to close
• Average LP commitment size
• Capital overhang (dry powder)
