What challenge(s) do our clients face?

To deliver sustainable and healthy returns PE firms must become successful operating partners for their portfolio companies.

High entry multiples and competition for assets is putting pressure on private equity companies to continue to deliver top quartile returns. Firms can no longer rely purely on financial engineering to enhance portfolio value and instead must become more innovative through operational improvements.

The greatest challenge that PE managers face today, therefore, is to become successful operating partners for their portfolio companies, actively supporting them to deliver significant and sustainable value and deliver the expected returns. It is not enough anymore to only bring-in an experienced management team and rely on senior experts on the board.

True operating partners must be engaged across the entire life-cycle of the deal, guaranteeing that the due diligence clearly identifies the main drivers of value-creation, collaborating with management teams to guide the business through the growth cycle, and truly understanding and focusing on the human element of the business. The working culture of a company, with an engaged, enthusiastic and incentivized team in the right organizational design is critical to success.
