Global Private Equity Outlook


Private equity raised an all-time record amount of capital in 2017. Fueled by low yields and investors' willingness to forgo traditional risk protections, it is expected to play a growing role in financial markets. But industry leaders are split on whether the size of the funds and dry powder constitute a bubble. Will the golden age of private equity continue? Or has the market turned a corner? How would global markets absorb all of that cash? And as the number of public-traded companies shrink, will private equity become the more popular market? How will interest rates impact the deals that have been financed with cheap debt?
