2023 Global Private Equity Outlook

This report includes insights from a survey of 100 senior PE executives in Asia, Europe and the U.S. on how they continue to show resilience in the face of a variety of macroeconomic and geopolitical issues.

Highlights include:

  • 42% of North American and 40% of APAC respondents agree that the availability and the cost of leverage amid monetary tightening is a top challenge currently facing PE.
  • 82% of North American respondents and 80% of EMEA respondents are optimistic that market conditions for PE liquidity events in the next 12 months will be more favorable.
  • 40% of APAC respondents say the single most important global fundraising challenge to their firm is that of large LPs concentrating their investment relationships with a smaller number of funds. 32% of EMEA and 20% of North American respondents agree with this.
