About This Report


The United Kingdom is the largest European centre for the management of private equity investments and funds, and is second only to the United States in terms of global importance. Private equity funds focus on generating long-term returns, typically within a 10-year period. The Private Equity industry grew strongly during the two decades leading up to the financial crisis and its role in the financial services sector expanded proportionately. However, the aftermath of the financial crisis brought the industry to its knees because investment and fund raising activity plummeted, and asset valuations dwindled. Consequently, revenue tumbled by 36.3% in 2008-09.

Companies in this industry manage private equity funds – a type of collective investment fund that targets investment in private companies – on behalf of investors such as pension funds, insurance companies and individual investors. They generate revenue by charging management fees for their services.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
