2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

Hawksford CEO Michel Leeuwen said: “We are seeing both Ireland and Africa rapidly becoming major growth markets and are pleased to have secured local expertise with longstanding heritage and commitment within their respective markets. We look forward to joining up our capabilities and continuing to expand our service offering to our clients globally.”

As agreed, Griffon Solutions and Pearse Trust will retain their employees and continue to serve their existing clients under their current management teams.

Commenting on the deal, Pearse Trust founder Joseph Hickey said: “We are eager to provide our clients with new opportunities and access to a broader range of services through the Hawksford group.
