We have a thread for regional boutique ibanks but could someone with access to CapIQ please help do a similar thing for PE firms? I'm sure people would be interested in PE shops both by industry as well as location and size.

For myself, energy shops (power, oil&gas, infrastructure) in New York or Boston, $300MM+.

Thanks very much ahead of time.
