Private Equity Outlook Survey 2019

The results

We surveyed private equity and real estate firms across the globe in order to take the temperature of the industry, get fund managers’ perspectives on 2018 and look ahead to the key challenges and opportunities in the private equity market.

In our previous annual surveys we have seen a rollercoaster ride for markets generally, amid a boom in fund raising. This year our findings suggest there is little expectation that volatility and instability will subside over coming year. However managers are preparing to navigate a trickier investment environment as certain political and economic uncertainties come to a head. The fund management industry sees plenty of opportunities as they are poised to deploy record levels of dry powder and take advantage of any potential corrections in the equity markets. The growing role of technology in both investment and communication process will also continue to gather pace.
