Largest private equity firms

The following is a ranking of the largest private equity firms. The ranking was compiled by Private Equity International, which reveals that the world's 50 largest private equity direct investment programs have raised a total of US$551 billion since 2002.[1]

The list includes very few venture capital firms, which tend to be smaller than their leveraged buyout counterparts; for a list of those see List of venture capital firms.
