Global Private Equity Report 2014

Author: Bain & Company
Date: March 2014

Released in the wake of PE's strongest year since the global financial crisis, Bain's latest Global Private Equity Report takes a comprehensive look at the sources of continuity and change as PE investors work to build on the industry's recent success. Key fundamentals remain strong: Robust public equity and debt markets are helping to boost asset sales, enabling PE firms to return capital to their limited partners and facilitating new rounds of fund-raising. But high asset valuations and volatile capital markets handicap PE deal making, and competition for deals remains ferocious. Also, slowing economic growth has taken some of the luster off the once-hot emerging markets.

This report examines every major aspect of private equity, armed with fresh data and insights from surveys as well as interviews with leading industry insiders. We also bring to bear the experience and judgment that Bain & Company derives from its unparalleled position as the leading adviser to the private equity industry and its stakeholders.
