Private equity companies throughout Europe have a lot of money at their disposal again and are on the lookout for attractive, international deals to partner with companies such as German SMEs and new start-up companies to make a lasting contribution to value creation in the age of digitalisation.

Will the declining returns begin to increase again? What potential is there in the various industries? How can the European private equity industry overcome the serious investment pressure, high purchase prices and fees?
