Fourth quarter deal momentum spilled into 2021, resulting in record Q1 numbers for the US PE market. PitchBook’s latest US PE Breakdown Report calculates a $203 billion quarter on 1,763 deals across the country. That’s only the fourth time that a quarter has breached the $200 billion mark. The most recent, of course, was Q4 2020, which we’re estimating at $293.7 billion. Added up, the past six months have recorded almost half a trillion dollars ($496.7 billion) in investments in the US alone.
