Last week AVCA released the results of its latest biannual data tracker providing us with a snapshot of private equity activity on the continent for the first half of 2016.

Deal activity remains strongest in the sub $250 million deal sector, with an absence of large deals holding the overall total for deals in the first 6 months to $0.9 billion. On the fundraising front, the total raised hit $1.1 billion which is trending downwards compared to 2015’s full year figure of $4.3 billion. However, 2016 has so far not seen the close of any funds hitting close to or over the $1 billion mark, unlike 2015.
