US PE found ways to adapt to 2022’s harsher environment
For all the headwinds that hit the private equity world in 2022, firms still managed to do over $1 trillion in deal value—down 18% from 2021. Early in the year, the record-breaking pace of new deals, exits and fundraising collided with higher interest rates. By mid-year, traditional debt markets closed, and PE firms had to adjust to make deals happen and keep the LBO machine humming.
Our 2022 Annual US PE Breakdown, sponsored by Stout, CBIZ Private Equity Advisory, Golub Capital, and Apex Group, explains how the industry adapted.
