Buyouts’ Q1 2022 fundraising report is now available for download.

Fundraising by private equity firms slowed in Q1 2022, as uncertainty, a crowded marketplace and overallocated LPs put a crimp on activity in the North American market.

Some 164 buyout, growth equity, venture capital and other PE funds raised almost $132 billion in the first quarter, down 24 percent from a year earlier, according to Buyouts’ data.

Fundraising results in Q1 reverse a trend of major post-pandemic growth. Last year saw the second-highest amount secured on record: more than $503 billion.

There may be as many (if not more) mega-funds competing for LP capital this year as in 2021. They include Apollo Investment Fund X, Advent International GPE X, Carlyle Partners VIII, Thoma Bravo XV and TPG Partners IX.
