Private Equity Executives Survey 2011 - Introduction

The Pulse of Private Equity - Spring 2011

This edition of The Pulse of Private Equity again employs research findings from senior private equity fund executives together with EisnerAmper analysis and industry observations to explore market trends. The Pulse of Private Equity research surveys private equity executives twice a year to review trends and the outlook for the future activity that is right around the corner.

The Report contains data on transaction and deal flow, debt financing, fund activities and level of portfolio company interaction, as well as views on limited partners’ concerns as expressed to fund executives. It offers a comparison, from the private equity executives’ point of view, of activity at private equity firms for Q1 2010 compared to the December 2010 through March 2011 period, along with their outlook for the first half of 2011 (1H 2011).
While the executive summary outlines the results, we invite you to read the entire Report for additional insight. Emerging or now-established trends are noted along with our observations from the research and we reference supporting market data. Our intent is for the Report to be of assistance when thinking about the private equity market as well as serving as a benchmark of your firm’s level of activity versus the respondents. We hope you find this Report useful and that you’ll share your thoughts and ideas with us.
