Headlines in the financial press of the last couple of months have reflected the resurgent IPO market for private equity portfolio company exits. Further evidence of this renewed appetite for risk was a research report released on May 24, 2011 by Preqin, a London based independent research firm focusing exclusively on alternative assets. Needless to say, the rebound of the IPO market is putting smiles on the faces of general partners and making limited partners very happy.

Several factors are cited including an expectation of an increase in attractive investment opportunities, a more receptive IPO market for portfolio company exits and an improved fund raising environment.
