Private equity fundraising poised to fall in 2018 (chart)

Private equity fundraising has gone up steadily over the past two years, but it may decline next year.

Preqin survey shows that just 35% of LPs plan to commit more to PE in the next 12 months, down from 40% of respondents last year and 43% in 2015.

In addition, the number of LPs that plan to commit less capital in the next 12 months has shot up sharply — from 13% of those surveyed in 2015 to 19% polled this year, Preqin reports.
