PEI 300: The largest funds and the LPs in them

The five largest funds raised over the last five years gathered a combined $95.3bn. Here are the LPs that made hefty commitments to more than one of them.

Five mega-funds gathered $95.3 billion in this year’s PEI 300 and made up close to 6 percent of the fundraising total in the last five years.

The standout is Hellman & Friedman’s $16 billion haul for its ninth flagship fund, Hellman & Friedman IX, which attracted sizeable LP commitments when it closed last October. The fund received more consistent capital from the biggest LPs than any other in the last five years, securing a total of $3.58 billion and an average allocation of about $400 million from the LPs in the list.
