Buyouts’ Q1-to-Q3 fundraising report is now available for download.
Fundraising by North American private equity firms reached an all-time high in 2021’s first three quarters, as investors continue to pledge more capital to the asset class.
Nearly $361 billion was raised by 617 buyout, growth equity, venture capital and other PE funds at the end of September, according to Buyouts’ data. In dollar terms, this surpasses activity in the first three quarters of all previous years.
If fundraising in October-to-December sustains this momentum, the year-end total could approach or improve on the record $497 billion secured in 2019.
