What makes a good investment opportunity for private equity?

Price: £50.00

Where: Duff & Phelps, The Shard , 32 London Bridge Street , London , London Bridge , SE1 9SG

This event brought to you by the Private Equity Special Interest Group, explores how private equity firms are operating in an increasingly competitive environment. A high number of well-funded experienced players are fighting to get hold of investment opportunities to deliver returns to their investors.

Recent studies suggest investment returns are driven by both the private equity investor’s ability to select promising companies as well as their capacity to add value through financial, governance, and operational strategies.

Screening and selecting businesses are the first step in the private equity investment process and arguably a key part in determining whether an investment succeeds or fails.

So how do private equity firms select their next investment? What makes a good investment opportunity for private equity? What are the key elements that private equity firms need to see in order to invest in a business?

A panel of high calibre speakers will share their insights on how to screen and select companies for private equity as well as examine the key criteria needed to identify a promising investment opportunity.
