Phenix Capital: More than €136 billion committed to Private Equity funds & new focus on Global markets
This report aims to provide an overview of Private Equity impact funds. It brings a combination of top-down data from the Phenix Impact Database and interviews with relevant industry players.
Private equity funds represent equity stakes in privately held companies or funds, and we segment them into Venture Capital, Growth, and Buyout strategies. Venture capital is typically characterised by high-risk investments in early-stage companies following a growth path in value-add sectors. Growth involves minority investments in relatively mature companies that are looking for capital to continue their expansion, and Buyout focuses on control investments in established firms that are undergoing a fundamental change in operations or strategy.
As private equity has been and continues to be the largest asset class in terms of number of funds on our Impact Database, in this report, we compare Private Equity impact funds to the rest of the Impact Fund Universe. We also provide an overview of past trends by looking at historical capital commitments to date but also look forward by analysing current fundraising.
