Buyouts’ H1 2022 fundraising report is now available for download.
Fundraising by private equity firms dipped in this year’s first half, as proliferating products in a crowded marketplace met with reduced supply due to over-allocated LPs.
A total of 417 buyout, growth equity, venture capital and other private equity vehicles in North America secured nearly $255 billion in H1 2022, according to Buyouts’ data, down 18 percent from a year earlier. Over the same period, the number of fund closings fell 37 percent.
Capital raising also declined on a quarter-over-quarter basis. Between April and June, funds brought in almost $115 billion, off by 18 percent from January through March.
These results confirm a slower pace of market activity in 2022, suggesting GPs may be experiencing longer fundraising timelines, delayed fund launches and related impacts.
