Private equity investments in July declined substantially both in terms of value and volume according to the latest Dealtracker report by Grant Thornton. While volumes declined 23% y-o-y, value was down 73% y-o-y. In value terms this is the lowest monthly investment in the last three years. This comes in the absence of big ticket investments as there were only three investments above $50 million in the month compared to 11 in July 2015.
