In the three months to end-September, appetite for private equity remained strong amid a backdrop of travel bans and global lockdowns.

The greatest interest lay with funds with a multi-regional focus. Of the top 20 largest fund commitments by private equity LPs in the three months to end-September, 13 were to multi-regional funds.

The most active investors in private equity were also agnostic when it came to regional appetite.

Combined, the top 10 most active investors, including State of Wisconsin Investment Board, have made a total of 168 fund commitments to 2020-vintage funds so far this year.

On average, the asset class constituted 7.49 percent of LP portfolios in Q3, with foundations and endowments dedicating an above-average proportion of roughly 11.02 percent.
