Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!

Researching private equity deal trends in 2022 is a real walk in the park. A quick google search and you’ll find all of the information you could ever want on deal volume, value, and a host of other trends.
Ever wonder how much PE investors make on those deals? Not as easy to find credible data sets on that.

In this week’s featured Industry Trends article, we surface a report that analyzes PE/VC compensation trends over the last five years. The report breaks down compensation by cash vs carried interest, and how that compensation varies by seniority and the firm’s AUM. Scroll down to the bottom of this week’s newsletter to access the report.
Our featured buy-side members this week include a leading PE firm, an investment partnership comprised of HNWI and family offices, and an acquirer and builder of businesses operating in niche markets. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to an M&A consulting firm with expertise in the construction space, and an SMB-focused M&A advisor.
