Maybe Fundraising Isn’t Dead. Here are Six New Funds in the Market

Ask and you shall receive. Last Friday I complained that fundraising activity was dead, dead, dead.

But one glance through today’s SEC filings and I’m up to my ears in new buyout and venture funds! Meanwhile, Dan is reporting from Buyouts Texas that maybe it’s not so bad out there. Or at least firms are feeling bold enough to test the market.

So read on for previously unreported news of six new funds in the market. Finally, some good news that doesn’t involve some cheerleader conference quotes from David Rubenstein or Steve Schwarzman. But I won’t get ahead of myself-the real good news will come when these funds actually meet their targets and close.
