Survey of private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) firms 2022

Acuity’s two-decades-long association with the private equity and venture capital sector has afforded it in-depth knowledge of its activities. It conducted a debut survey of firms in this sector, gathering professional insights and opinions on how they are likely to fare in 2022 in terms of fundraising, dry powder, regulations, ESG considerations, private equity operations, investing areas, strategies, outsourcing, valuations and exits.

Key Takeaways

• Fundraising is expected to remain strong in 2022, continuing the trend in recent years, driven by a strong business support ecosystem.
• 67% of the professionals surveyed believe investment opportunities are increasing.
• Technology, media, and telecom (TMT) and healthcare sector-based companies are likely to attract the most attention from PE&VC firms.
• PE&VC operations remain an area for improvement, with PE&VC professionals spending more than three-fourths of their time on due diligence, portfolio monitoring, deal sourcing and valuation.
• Valuations are expected to remain high, with a limited impact on exit plans.
• The sector expects regulatory stringency to continue and very likely increase.
