[credit provider=”AP”]

Yes, we’ve all heard and heard and heard some more about Bain Capital recently.But what about the rest of the private equity industry?

Sure, Bain is big player.

With $29.4 billion in capital raised, if Bain were included on our list, it would be the 7th largest PE fund. 

With Bain news flooding out at a torrential rate, we thought we’d take a step back and look at the other biggest players in the industry.

Note: all capital raising data is as of April 2011 and sourced from Private Equity International
