Preqin Quarterly Update: Real Estate, Q3 2014

Thu, 23/10/2014 - 12:32

Despite a slight fall in fundraising in Q3 2014 compared to the previous quarter, the total capital raised in 2014 so far remains strong, with the USD63bn raised in the first three quarters of the year surpassing the USD56bn raised during the same period last year. However, the number of funds reaching a final close has declined from 166 to 121 over this time period, and almost two-thirds of capital raised by funds holding a close in Q3 came from just five firms, suggesting that capital is increasingly concentrated among fewer managers. »

Preqin Quarterly Update: Private Equity, Q3 2014

Thu, 23/10/2014 - 12:25

The third quarter of 2014 saw 199 private equity funds reach a final close, raising USD80bn in aggregate capital, representing 21% fewer vehicles and a significant 44% decrease in capital commitments compared to the previous quarter. However, the relatively low number of funds means that the average fund size of USD402m is particularly high. Investors seem to be more inclined to commit capital to the larger, more established private equity fund managers, and these statistics serve as evidence of continuation of the trend seen in the fundraising market last year. »
