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 (PE), 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, PE 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.
PE will once again have an opportunity to prove that its active ownership — as we have found in both the North American and European studies on how PE investors create value — enables it to create stronger and more profitable businesses. In fact, institutional investors are seeking exposure to Latin America’s attractive growth story — Brazil in particular — like never before to initiate or expand their private equity investment programs in the region.
This begs the question: Is the rest of the world evolving to replicate the PE model in the emerging markets? Find out why we say yes.
