Coller Capital, a leading investor in the PE secondaries market, just released its biannual Private Equity Barometer. The report learned that “84% of PE investors will refuse re-investment requests from GPs whose last two funds they backed.” However, there are also indications that investments in first funds, primarily by family offices and insurance companies, will be on the rise.
