July 31, 2017 | Private equity funds invested $807 million in Israeli companies in the first half of 2017, according to a report by IVC Research Center and Israeli law firm Shibolet. Of the $807 million, $470 million were invested by Israeli PE funds, which reflects an improvement from the first half of 2016. Although the second quarter of 2017 was slow (with only $164 million invested in eight deals by Israeli PE funds), the strong first quarter meant that, in total, over the first half of 2017, Israeli PE funds performed above their average investment level of the past three years.
