Private Equity Data API

Table of contents


The Private Equity Data API consists of 3 distinct endpoints, which can be used separately to interrogate specific datasets, or in aggregation for a fuller data view.

Current holdings

Use the /activePortfolio API to get data on active portfolio companies, with views by geography and industry​, and underlying transactions​.

Realized investments

The /exits endpoint returns PE’s realized investments, with views by geography and industry​, and underlying transactions​.

Private equity firm overview

To get the overview of a private equity firm, you can query the endpoint with our unique identifier (/{Id}) and get the firm’s description, headquarter, list of funds and links to the portfolio and exits APIs.

Quick start

To get the list of private equity sponsor and their active portfolio included in your subscription, you can call this API:

curl -H 'x-api-key: YOUR_API_KEY' 

Likewise for the list of realized investment, you can hit the API:

curl -H 'x-api-key: YOUR_API_KEY'

The ‘hits’ property in the payload shows the total number of items returned. The default response is capped to 10 items per page, and you can paginate to get additional content. The API can also be interrogated using a set of filters to fetch specific subsets of data.


We recommend the use of GZIP compression to gain up to 80% reduction in the JSON data transfer.

Concurrency and rate limits

Each API key is limited to a maximum of 5 concurrent requests and 10 requests per second. Requests over the limit will receive the response ‘429 Too Many Requests’.

Full documentation

Detailed technical information for the Acuris Intelligence API is available via the Swagger documentation.
