The global private equity industry continues to grow at a historic pace, just as more and more funds are raised, invested and distributed back to investors; an unprecedented growth that has never been seen throughout any other period in history. However, the future remains uncertain, and investors will need to come up with smarter ways to identify and source deals, unlock the value potential, exit investments, and repeat!
With increased competition, volatile capital markets, geopolitical conflicts, and the rapid pace of technological change, attractive investment opportunities are running in short supply and fund-raising is also becoming more and more competitive than ever. Investors need to come up with more sophisticated methods to manage the full deal cycle; from deal generation and diligence, to post-deal value creation and realization and exit planning.
Key issues include:
- How to profile and screen the right targets in a dynamic and complex portfolio?
- How to meet the acquisition of multiple targets in an increasingly competitive market?
- How to use digital technologies and analytics in due-diligence and make better deals decisions?
- How to create and execute ambitious value-creation plans and maximize investment capabilities?
- How to plan and develop a successful transformation program and unlock the deal potential?
- How to plant the seeds for effective and timely exit planning and optimal value realization?
- How to manage and accelerate the portfolio of deals, given uncertain scenarios?
