PE Report Q1: analysis of European & Benelux market trends

2022 was a challenging year for public and private markets alike, marked by geopolitical turmoil, increasing interest rates, surging inflation and continuous uncertainty. Given the current macro- economic environment, it’s only natural for the following questions to arise: how did private equity funds perform in 2022, and will the same trend continue throughout 2023?

With this quarterly report on European Private Equity Fundraising, we aim to provide an answer to those questions, while giving more insight into how investors navigate the PE asset class in uncertain times.

The report focuses on the evolution of fundraising within the European PE space. It highlights the main funds that had their last close in the most recent quarter, with a specific focus on possible trends in the Benelux market.

We’ve compiled the report using Pitchbook data and supplemented it with market commentary from the August team.
