German private equity funds raised €4.88bn in the first nine months of 2023, showcasing an uplift of from last year’s annual total according to Mergermarket. However, in contrast to wider European trends, German funds tend to be on the smaller end of the scale, between the €250-€500m mark. As well as this, the number of funds holding closes in 2023 decreased from 16 to just seven. This panel will delve into the crucial perspectives of Limited Partners shaping the investment landscape. As LPs continue to play a pivotal role in driving private equity strategies and allocations, this session will provide an opportunity to gain deeper insights into their perspectives, preferences, and expectations within the German market.
