The conversation explores how companies can think about private equity at any point in their growth lifecycle and why talent remains at the top of the list of priorities for PE focus.

Key takeaways

  • Valuations remain high across the deal market as a result of increased competition, which is seeing PE firms respond in a number of different ways.
  • PE firms are using creativity in their deal structures to seek a competitive edge. This includes greenfield investments, looking at distressed industries, and taking on minority stakes.
  • Choose your PE firm carefully as different firms have different styles. Choose a partner that is a good fit for your organization.
