Market At A Glance

Year-to-date disclosed deal volume now stands at $29.1 billion.

Meanwhile, fundraising has started to perk up. Buyout and mezzanine firms boosted the year-to-date fundraising total to $9.3 billion, up from less than $1 billion two weeks ago. The uptick comes in part from Carlyle Group and Riverstone Holdings, which held a $2.4 billion first close on their latest joint energy fund, and Trust Company of the West, which closed on $2.6 billion for its own newest energy fund.
