The 3Q 2018 US PE Breakdown speaks to a bustling quarter of private equity activity. The first three quarters of 2018 saw $508.8 billion (3.4% YoY increase) deal value across 3,501 deals, $280.2 billion (4.8% YoY increase) exit value across 752 exits, and $121.4 billion (31.3% YoY decrease) raised across 143 funds. This edition, co-sponsored by Twin Brook Capital Partners, touches on recent trends such as PE firms reaching with increasing frequency for insurance assets and a germinating partiality toward growth equity investing.
