The success of the private equity industry in recent years has been reflected by significant growth in the number of private equity firms and assets under management. But that success has created new challenges for the industry. 

Fierce competition for assets means firms must be clear on the value proposition for potential acquisitions, while also being able to make decisions and act quickly.  An abundance of firms with money to spend has also inflated asset prices and driven the need to generate more value from portfolio companies. At the same time, much of the low-hanging fruit has been picked, and more complex structural change is required to create value.

The Covid-19 pandemic has also created a multitude of additional challenges for portfolio companies. Many private equity firms are adopting a more active management style to help their acquisitions tackle these challenges while ensuring the potential for future growth is not compromised. 

Specialist support from the right external partners is key to addressing these challenges. Genioo has extensive experience of working with private equity firms and their portfolio companies to deliver sustainable benefits while enhancing their return on investment. Our breadth of experience, our proven track record of delivery and our unique, cost-effective model make us ideally placed to help you unlock more value, faster.
