The European private equity data source

Share

Invest Europe is recognised as the authoritative data source for European private equity by institutions including the European Commission and OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development). Rigorous research has underpinned Invest Europe’s work with policymakers, press, the public and investors since 1984. To deliver this robust, trusted research data and insight, Invest Europe collects data on more than 1,400 PE firms. 

Activity Data

Invest Europe  gathers data on private equity fundraising, investment and divestment from more than 1,400 private equity firms in Europe. This data is published in the Annual Activity Statistics.

All Invest Europe members must respond to a survey performed by PEREP_Analytics, a non-commercial pan-European private equity database with its own staff and resources.
