When ranked by the number of data room requests over the past three months, the most striking aspect of the top 10 investable fundraisings on Palico is sheer strategic diversity. Everything from Middle East buyouts to structured equity and debt in the U.S. and Europe is represented, demonstrating just how far from “plain vanilla” private equity has moved in recent years.
With one exception, all of Palico’s ten most popular venture capital fundraisings over the past three months are from ‘emerging managers,’ general partners seeking capital for either their first or second fund.
Though large fundraisings have become increasing specialized in recent years, small fundraisings targeting $250 million or less have become even more nichey. This is borne out by a look at the most popular small fundraisings listed in Palico’s private equity marketplace.
When ranked by the number of data room requests over the past three months from 2,749 accredited investors looking for investments in Palico’s online private equity fund marketplace, what stands out among popular emerging market vehicles is their diversity, notably by geography and strategy.
