Now down to 4.9 years, the median holding time of PE assets continues to fall. That’s the first sub-5 year reading since 2011, a timeframe that saw a peak of 6.2 years back in 2014, according to PitchBook’s latest Breakdown Report. Much of the overall downfall—a good trend to see falling—is due to top-quartile hold times, which are now down to 7.1 years on a median basis.
