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:

The firm, which went public in the US last year, is said to have about BRL1.4bn in net cash to fund acquisitions and offer seed money to new funds.

Vinci Partners Investments CEO Alessandro Horta told the news agency in an interview: “The industry in Brazil and Latin America is highly volatile because of global turbulence. The upheaval creates opportunities for takeovers.”

In Latin America, the investors are said to choose Treasury bonds and fixed-income funds over riskier investments owing to the increasing turbulence in the US equity markets and rising interest rates globally.

Vinci, which provides longer-term funds with lock-ups, is set to take advantage of the changing market realities.

Horta said: “Although the industry is suffering, we have a more resilient model and even the more liquid ones had only tiny outflows.”

He also added that the firm can be patient in its search for acquisition candidates, and nothing is likely in the short term.

Meanwhile, some of Vinci’s peers have already made their move. Recently, Brazilian distressed asset manager Jive Investments agreed to combine with investment firm Maua Capital.

Last December, Patria Investments took over Chile-based Moneda Asset Management, establishing a $25bn firm with investments including private equity, infrastructure and credit funds.

This January, a report by Bloomberg said that Goldman Sachs is planning to beef up its workforce in Latin America with a focus on ‘equity capital markets’.
