Private Equity Executives Survey - Fall 2011 - About the Research

The Pulse of Private Equity - Fall 2011 

This Report is part of an ongoing survey series and is designed to take the pulse of the private equity market in relation to earlier periods coupled with an outlook for the second half of 2011 (2H 2011). Private equity executives were asked to comment on their firms’ anticipated activities for the second half of 2011 and 2012. This outlook is compared to earlier periods.

The 111 respondents, all from funds, were primarily general partners as well as managing, executive and other directors (58 percent). The other respondents were a cross-section of principals, CFOs, COOs and vice presidents, among other senior positions.

Respondents were from a representative crosssection of funds (See Figure 1) which varied in size as shown in Figure 2. Surveys were completed from May to August 2011.

100 percent of the respondents were from the U.S. with the New York/New Jersey/ Pennsylvania/Connecticut corridor representing 46 percent of the responses.
