πŸ’° The 25 Largest Private Equity Firms πŸ’°
Surprising parallels between the top 3 firms.

Even without the recent final closing of its long-hold PE fund (BCEP II) at $8B,
the Blackstone Group would have emerged as the clear winner of the ranking β€”

Having raised $95.9B over the past 5 years!

What’s interesting:
Blackstone is not the only PE manager straying from the traditional 10-year fund
model.

❗ All top 3 firms (Blackstone, Carlyle Group, and KKR & Co.) have set up
vehicles that are planning to invest with a longer time horizon.

And looking at the funds raised, the strategy seems to be paying off β€”
Even more so in the current volatile and unpredictable COVID-19 environment.

With the economic downturn resulting in newly distressed companies and potential
takeover targets AND so much dry powder, I expect quite some movement in the PE
world. πŸ€”

β†’ Will there be an increase in PE activity?
β†’ And will we see a shift to investments in long-term survivors rather than
short-term winners?

What do you think? πŸ‘‡ πŸ’¬
