Buyouts’ H1 2020 fundraising report is now available for download.
Buyouts data suggest the covid-19 pandemic did not impact the amount of capital raised by North American private equity funds in the first half of 2020, with offerings collecting a total of $162 billion, up 8 percent from the same time last year.
The number of funds closed, however, declined. Some 240 closings were recorded in the first half, down 27 percent from a year earlier, indicating the early influence of the health crisis, as many PE firms extended marketing timetables.
