Exits: an evolving landscape
Given current economic conditions, US PE firms are likely to navigate the exit market vis-a-vis more unique approaches. In a bid to get liquidity for their LPs, and with the IPO market effectively down, trade sales to strategic players have increased, and buyouts and take-privates have also been outpacing exits.

- Will the exit market pick up pace in 2023?
