Private Equity

Winning in a new era

Private equity firms are operating today in an increasingly uncertain environment. After the global financial crisis, the most important lesson learned was: expect the unexpected.

Against this backdrop, how do you balance buy- and sell- side opportunities and expand into new markets with a continued focus on value creation in existing portfolios -- all the while meeting expanding regulations and risks? Are you strategically positioned? Discover how we can help you gain perspective on issues and trends affecting the private equity industry, including:


  • Creating value in private equity investments

    Those able to demonstrate a consistent track record in creating value in their portfolio — which translates into best-in-class realized returns —should be well positioned to attract fresh capital.

    Private equity, similar to other industries, is not immune to continued macro-economic uncertainties, including the impacts of the US and European sovereign debt issues that cloud the horizon.

    However, it is resilient, nimble and has demonstrated an ability to withstand shocks. It’s no wonder private equity investors have come out of the recession with a renewed focus on organic revenue growth, applying a more entrepreneurial mindset to working with their portfolio companies.

    This begs the question: is the rest of the world evolving to replicate the private equity model in emerging markets? Find out why we say yes.

  • Private Equity-backed IPO activity

    An IPO can be one of the best routes to funding growth for fast-growing companies seeking to raise capital. But it's not a decision that can be taken lightly, and the most successful companies approach an IPO as a transformational process rather than a pure financing event or an endgame.

    Gain insight into the markets trends that are impacting global private equity-backed IPO volume, deal activity, investor sentiment and more.

  • Private equity opportunities in emerging markets

    To help private equity executives and investors gain insights into notable emerging markets, we offer perspectives into the trends, challenges and opportunities that are shaping them.
