Raising Growth Capital Through Equity Private Placements

U.S. and European private placement activity more than tripled from over $160 billion in 2017 to nearly $700 billion in 2021. The growth has been spurred in part by a broadening investor base that now includes public market institutional investors alongside the traditional venture, growth and private equity funds.

Interest in private placements is likely to continue – in technology as well as other sectors – amid the slowest IPO market since 2008 and continued volatility in equity markets.
