Global Private Markets Update: Q1 2019

Our quarterly Global Private Markets Update provides a regional outlook for private markets in the context of recent trends in fundraising, investment and exit activity.

In the Q1 2019 update, our investment teams share their thoughts on the private markets’ start to the year and provide their outlook on what to expect across the remainder of 2019. In short, the global private equity market remained in rude health in the first quarter, particularly in the US where fundraising and investment remained elevated. Activity in Europe and Asia Pacific may have cooled slightly after a robust 2018 but remains strong on a historical basis, with optimism on prospects for the year ahead.
