Year-End 2019 Global Private Capital Industry Data & Statistics

EMPEA Members log in to receive exclusive access to the detailed report (PDF) and underlying data (Excel).

  • EM-focused private capital vehicles raised USD78 billion in 2019, with a slowdown in pan-Asia and China-dedicated funds largely offset by increased fund closes from multi-regional GPs.
  • Fund managers deployed record levels of capital in India and Brazil, driven by increased VC activity, and the Middle East saw the largest private capital deal completed since 2012.
  • Private capital investors deployed USD12.7 billion across 280 deals in the health care sector in 2019. The need for investment in health care will likely be greater than ever before as policymakers, health officials, and business leaders work in partnership to address the near-term task of fighting the pandemic and look to build more resilient and sophisticated health care systems over the long term.
