How emerging managers fared during the global financial crisis
First-time managers have been riding the venture capital boom with more than 200 new managers closing venture funds each year since 2017. But now, as the market faces a downturn, investors are hiking up the premium on experience in the fundraising market. While established managers are still flush with capital, Q1 data shows that emerging managers are already struggling to close their funds.

Our latest analyst note looks back to the global financial crisis to explore how first-time managers fare in an uncertain market. While the most difficult years are likely yet to come, the data is promising for managers that raise their first funds in the years leading up to a crisis.

SaaS valuations slide for late-stage deals
(Nuthawut Somsuk/Getty Images)
Shares of fast-growing SaaS companies have tumbled about 60% off their recent 12-month highs, and startup valuations are expected to follow suit.

But so far this year, the valuation descent has only been seen in late-stage deals, while median seed and early-stage software deal prices have reached record levels. Only time will tell if VC-backed SaaS startups' ultimate tumble is as pronounced as their publicly traded counterparts. However, analysts expect the valuation slump for private companies to be less severe.

The 10 side letter terms shaping your relationships with investors
Some are surprising.

Asset managers are handling more side letters than ever, and these agreements are becoming increasingly complex. While firms strive to keep up with investors' expectations and prepare for evolving compliance issues, many are struggling.

Side letter terms often vary subtly, whether with regard to fees, disclosures, restrictions, or ESG standards. And these variations can have a significant impact on firms' compliance efforts and relationships with investors.

Ontra's guide details the top 10 evolving side letter provisions. Actively and efficiently managing these terms and other investor obligations can make or break a firm's reputation.

Who are the most active PE investors in healthcare?
(Andriy Onufriyenko/Getty Images)
Healthcare dealmaking remained steady entering this year, with the first quarter headlined by mammoth buyouts targeting sizable companies such as Australian private-hospital operator Ramsay Health Care and cloud-based health IT vendor Athenahealth.

Even amid a series of macro headwinds, private equity firms poured billions of dollars into healthcare assets during that period, extending a string of mega-deals and a surge in exits that started last year. And more capital is expected to be allocated to healthcare assets—a defensive sector—amid macro headwinds and market volatility, PitchBook analysts say.

We put together a list of global PE investors that have been the most active in healthcare buyouts since 2017.

Golden State Warriors or the Celtics? Either way, a PE firm wins
(Gearstd/Getty Images)
The Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics are vying for the NBA's most coveted honor, and so are PE firms. Regardless of who wins, a private investment firm will have a hand in raising the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Both teams have significant ties to private equity, with the Warriors being principally owned by Joe Lacob, a partner at Kleiner Perkins; Artcos Sports Partners owns a 13% stake in the franchise. The Boston Celtics' managing partner is Stephen Pagliuca, co-chairman of Bain Capital.
