Record PE, VC investments in October

New Delhi. Private equity (PE) and venture capital (VC) investments soared to an all-time high of $12.9 billion in October, driven by big deals. Consultancy firm EY and industry body IVCA gave this information in a report on Tuesday. According to this, this figure was 71 percent higher in October 2021 as compared to the PE and venture capital investment of $ 7.5 billion in October 2020. At the same time, this figure is 2.5 times higher than in September 2021 when PE and venture capital investment was only $ 5.2 billion.

If we look at the number of transactions, the 127 deals concluded in October are 38 per cent higher than the 92 deals in the same period a year ago. But in September 2021, this number was 134. Vivek Soni, Partner, EY, said, “PE & Venture Capital investment has been steadily increasing in 2021 and has reached an all-time high. Total PE and venture capital investments stood at $65.6 billion by October this year, which is 38 per cent higher than the year’s 2020 levels.

The report says that there were 21 deals worth more than $100 million in this month, totaling $10.9 billion. Net PE and venture capital investment in sectors other than real estate and infrastructure also stood at $12.1 billion last month, which is 2.5 times as compared to $4.8 billion in October 2020.
