VC Value Hits Record in EU Despite Low Deal Flow in 2Q 2015

Capital investment hits a €3.3 billion all-time high despite uncertainty in the EU, reveals PitchBook 3Q 2015 European Private Equity Breakdown.

Socio-economic uncertainty slowed dealmaking but capital investment value hit a new record in Europe in the second quarter of 2015, according to PitchBook 3Q 2015 European Private Equity Breakdown report, produced with Merrill Corporation.
