Private Equity – success beyond borders

Return of a golden era: Private equity funds globally are flush with cash and have more money at their disposal than ever before. Last year alone, the booming sector attracted a record 680 billion Dollars in new money as the ultralow interest environment prompted pension funds, insurance companies and other large investors to push into alternative investments. With 840 billion Dollars in unspent money, private equity funds are under more intense pressure than ever to find attractive deals. And to create a new deal flow, many are forcefully expanding into new territories such as the booming tech sector.

At the same time private equity managers are faced with numerous challenges and questions.

  • What is Europe’s political and economic future?
  • 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?
  • What is the next generation of deals?
