Private Equity

Private Equity has steadily grown into a major asset class, now accounting for almost 15% of M&A activity globally.


In the last few years global private equity investors have on average invested in 3 500 companies annually with a total deal value of about 500 BUSD per year. They create value for their investors by:

· Originating deals in companies with an untapped potential

· Supporting value creation over the investment period through "smart capital" and active ownership contributions

· Finding exit opportunities that reflect the value created over a successful holding period

As a result of the industry's success and the general increase in access to investment funds, private equity activity has grown substantially. However, the competition is fierce – both to attract funds and to finding the right companies to invest in.

Arkwright has over the last decade worked with some of the most prominent private equity firms; both national champions and global firms – ranging from small/ mid to large cap in fund size.
