German Private Equity Barometer

Business Climate Index for the German Private Equity Market

Calculation of the German Private Equity Barometer: The German Private Equity Barometer is based on a quarterly survey of the 200+ members of the German Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (Bundesverband Deutscher Kapital­beteiligungs­gesellschaften – BVK). The German Private Equity Barometer reports the business climate in the German private equity capital market. The business climate is calculated as the mean of the net balance of the weighted assessments of the current business situation (positive responses minus negative responses, expressed as a percentage) and the equivalent net business expectations for the coming six months. The responses provided by interviewees are weighted to reflect the volume of capital under management and the investment focus of all BVK members.
