Somewhat expected, we found a quirk in Q1 fundraising data that should reverse soon. Funds that closed in the first three months of 2020 were wrapped up relatively quickly compared to 2019, according to PitchBook’s latest US Middle Market Report. As a whole, middle market funds that closed in Q1 took only 9.4 months to do so, which was visibly faster than the 12.0 months it took similar funds to close in 2019.
