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:  
  • Track the Aggregate Investment Volumes in PE/VC-Stage firms across geographies and sectors, in addition to viewing the specific deals that drove these volumes
  • Identify the top investors already active in any sector-Geography combinations
  • Assess the Performance of Financial and Legal Advisors, supporting the Dealmaking in any segment of choice (Customizable League tables)
  • Understand what is driving the PE/VC fundraising (Deal Rationale)

As part of the strategic partnership, Manulife IM will collaborate with ARCHCapital on future products and investment strategies.

The two companies also plan to offer investors a range of products across different “strategies.

The partnership’s combined AUM is said to exceed $5bn across 12 Asian markets.

ARCH Capital founder and CEO Richard Yue said: “This partnership would give us enhanced strengths and geographical reach through a powerful combination of Manulife Investment Management’s global institutional foundation with ARCH Capital’s local presence.”

Manulife IM’s real estate team specialises in developing and managing commercial real estate worldwide on behalf of its clients.

These include the firm’s general account, comprising office, multi-family, industrial, and retail across different regions.
