Market Overview: Happy New Year?

It’s 2020, and the private equity industry seems to be facing the same question that it faced in 2019, 2018 and 2017. Namely, how much longer can the market keep expanding?

No one knows when a downturn will hit. So how much time and attention should you devote to this perennial concern? And specifically, what are the implications for investing? How should you think about exits? What about fund-raising? And what are the potential impacts on returns?

In this episode of Dry Powder, we'll take a look at the high-level trends and data that emerged in each of these areas over the course of 2019. Our review of 2019 will help you prepare for the year ahead and detect the winds of change that could blow your present strategy off course.
