Preliminary scope of work
Private equity industry in Central and Eastern Europe
(CEE) and Western Europe in the last decade experienced two extremes. Strong
growth and deep decline. The industry in both regions recovers however, it
seems that the full recovery will take time. Fundraising in CEE as well as
in Western Europe becomes more di�cult than before the crisis. Investors
are less willing to commit their capital to private equity in CEE and private
equity companies in Western Europe also register di�culties with raising new
funds. Investment activity grows in both regions however, there are signs of
lacking demand for private equity capital from entrepreneurs. Therefore it is
interesting to try to �nd the determinants for fundraising and investment and
try to �nd out if there are common determinants. Moreover we try to compare
them between CEE and Western Europe. Our research is unique since we use
the latest data available. The aim of this thesis is to �nd out if there are common determi-
nants of private equity fundraising and investment and try to �nd out if there
are di�erences between them in CEE and Western Europe.
