Private Equity Executives Survey 2011 - About the Research

The Pulse of Private Equity - Spring 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 first half of 2011. Private equity executives were asked to comment on their firms’ activities over three distinct periods of time:

  • Looking back to Q1 2010
  • December 2010 through Q1 2011
    (Interviews were conducted from December 2, 2010 through March 23, 2011)
  • Outlook for 1H 2011

The 107 respondents, all from funds, were primarily general partners as well as managing, executive and other directors (62 percent). The other respondents were a cross-section of principals, CFOs, COOs and vice presidents, among other senior positions. Respondents were from a representative cross-section of firms (See Figure 1) which varied in size as shown in Figure 2.
