At KPMG, we recognize that private equity is not just about the transaction but also about a continuous cycle of fundraising & portfolio management.
At KPMG, we recognize that private equity is not just about the transaction but also...
In today’s market, high prices for quality assets and a likely low growth economic environment in the medium term in most developed markets, will require private equity houses to work harder and smarter to add value to their portfolios. This will require better operational understanding of targets pre-acquisition and likely more value creating intervention during ownership. Advisors will therefore need to have deep insight into relevant business sectors and understand companies thoroughly from an operational and strategic perspective. This is why we at KPMG with our industry sector focus groups and multidisciplinary teams, are well positioned to provide coordinated services to the private equity industry.
