Optimising Deal Returns in Private Equity

London |
Speakers include:
Javier  Espinoza

Overview

In recent years, private equity funds have generated keen interest from institutional investors, sparked by low interest rates and a record of well-performing portfolios. Firms are under increasing pressure to deploy capital, but with competition for assets fierce and the business climate uncertain, identifying and executing profitable deals has become increasingly complex. As a result, according to figures by Preqin, globally there remains over $2.5trillion of idle private equity ‘dry powder’.  

Amid prolonged political, regulatory and economic uncertainty and rapid technological change, private equity firms need new strategies to generate value. To deliver stakeholder returns, it’s imperative for firms to improve the way they identify potential investments, establish new partnerships and develop operational expertise to ensure their investments perform better. Moreover, proposed deals must be combined with vigorous planning to ensure value creation remains the key driver behind strategic initiatives. A transitionary period where corporates are divesting assets and restructuring offers huge opportunities for private equity. How can firms thrive in an unsettled environment and find new opportunities to generate better stakeholder returns?

Hosted under the Chatham House rule, this exclusive roundtable breakfast discussion will bring together a select group of mid-market Private Equity Investment Professionals to consider new strategies for creating robust and better-performing portfolios
