As we bid the year farewell, the team at Private Equity International can’t help but reminisce over the most memorable developments of the year. Who can forget the meteoric rise and fall of special purpose acquisition companies, the appeal of continuation funds and the growing attraction to retail capital?

We’ll be taking a break this holiday season and will return on 4 January for more news, insight and analysis on the ever-growing private equity market. In the meantime, for your daily PE fix, check out our time-honoured end-of-year pieces, including our standout quotes of the year and most memorable PEI Spotlight podcasts.

We hope you have a fantastic break and look forward to catching up in the new year.
