Chart of the Week: Private equity fundraising poised to fall

Private equity fundraising has gone up steadily over the past two years, but it may decline next year.

A Preqin survey shows that just 35% of LPs plan to commit more to PE in the next 12 months, down from 40% of respondents last year and 43% in 2015.

In addition, the number of LPs that plan to commit less capital in the next 12 months has shot up sharply — from 13% of those surveyed in 2015 to 19% polled this year, Preqin reports.
