|Abstract:||Using dataset of 198 buyout funds and 90 venture captial funds available to institutional investors in
Europe in 2013 we make several comparisons. Firstly we compare our sample to the overall
performance of private equity, secondly we ask which investments are more likely to be profitable for
investors focused in funds operated exclusively in Euro currency. Finally we look for determinants of
private equity fund returns in Europe. Moreover we compiled survey of fundamental principles and
actual knowledges in the problem of private equity performance.
