Questions whirl around what impact the COVID-19 crisis will have on private market cash flows. However, fund managers have not had much time to adapt—the crisis is only months old overall, and in the US only began intensifying about two months ago as of the time of this writing. The latest installment of the Private Fund Strategies Report draws on datasets spanning fundraising and dry powder to review key trends across six private market strategies: private equity, venture capital, real assets, private debt, funds of funds and secondaries. Using the most recently available data at sufficiently robust levels, our analysts identify the most important findings leading up to the COVID-19 crisis and provide a forecast for how fundraising cycles and strategies are likeliest to adapt going forward.
