Private Debt Investor Fundraising Reports

Private Debt Investor's Fundraising Reports analyse the current state of the private debt fundraising market and detail the significant trends affecting the market in each quarter.

Q1 2018 Fundraising Report

The early indications are that 2018 will be another strong year for fundraising, with LP appetite overcoming fears around deal structures and a more volatile macroeconomic environment.

The first quarter saw $37.1 billion raised globally. If this amount were multiplied by four to give a figure for the whole year, it would total $148.4 billion – which would be the second-highest annual total on record, beaten only by last year’s $187.5 billion.
