Private Equity Firms: Cross-Border Investments

As an industry average, private equity firms tend to hold approximately 25% of their portfolio companies outside their home country (and 75% domestic). This 25-75% mix of domestic vs. cross-border investing seems to hold fairly constant over time.

(Note: this study refers to the actual number of portfolio companies, not the enterprise values)
