Dealmaking expected to increase over five years, survey finds

Three-quarters (76%) of private markets professions expect market conditions for dealmaking to improve within five years, according to a survey.

The survey of 400 C-suite executives and senior professionals working in private markets also found that 29% of global respondents believe market conditions will improve within the next 12 months.

The survey commissioned by business administration and compliance firm CSC also found that the launch of special purpose vehicles (SPVs) is expected to rise over the next two to five years.

Investment professionals in private equity, private debt, real estate, and infrastructure in Europe, the U.S. and Asia Pacific were surveyed.

Among key other key findings, the growth of private debt—and the role that SPVs are playing in supporting the growth of this asset class—was particularly notable. Around two thirds (67%) of debt professionals believe market conditions will improve over the next two to five years.

“Our study has found far more optimistic sentiment among senior private markets professionals, following a few years of significant market volatility, which bodes well for the wider investment sector and global economy,” said Thijs van Ingen of CSC.

“Private debt professionals were much more optimistic than their peers working in different sectors. This supports the trend we are seeing more generally in the market, which sways towards private debt.”
