Global Private Equity Outlook

2016 was another exceptional year for private equity investment. Capital committed to traditional funds, co-investments, separate accounts and direct deals hit a record of $681 billion, beating the previous high set in 2015 by 9 percent. This session will examine major trends in private equity with a focus on the investment opportunities and the economic landscape.

Should more private equity funds consider permanent capital vehicles for investing?
Is the fee structure sustainable?
Are too many firms chasing the same deals, crowding the market and making new targets harder to find?
Are multi-strategy funds still plausible or does the industry need more specialization?
Will we ever see a return of mega-buyouts?
