Here are some highlights from our PE coverage this week:
• The 2007-2008 U.S. economic recession sparked a flood of PE capital to help recapitalize distressed businesses as credit and later equity markets fell apart. With the recent economic and market struggles coming to light in China, we took a look at U.S. PE activity in Greater China to gauge the possibility that U.S. PE will enter that market as well.

• PitchBook teamed up with J. Thelander Consulting to conduct an annual survey and study on investment firm compensation. With over 500 global respondents, this report serves as the largest collection of PE, VC and corporate VC firm compensation data available today. Click here to access a free overview of the report.
• The FOMC announced yesterday that it will hold off on raising interest rates for the time being. In the months leading up to the meeting, market observers continued to debate the effect a hike would have on both public markets and PE deal activity. With that, we decided to take a look back at debt and equity levels in PE deals from our most recent Deal Terms Report. PitchBook clients can access the report in the reports library of our platform.
