In the first to second quarter of 2022, Mergermarket, on behalf of Third Bridge, surveyed 114 senior executives from PEs based in core European markets including the UK (23), France (23), the DACH region (24), the Benelux region (22), and Denmark, Norway and Sweden (22). Thirty PE firms stated that their last fund size was less than €50m, 53 stated it was €50m-$500m, while a further 31 stated it is more than €500m. The survey included a combination of qualitative and quantitative questions. All interviews were conducted over the telephone by appointment. Results were analysed and collated by Mergermarket, and all responses are anonymised and presented in aggregate.
