Private Equity: Challenges & Opportunities

As inflation rises, private equity funds face several immediate challenges within the macro environment. Understanding the impact of inflation should be a top priority, followed by value-added transformation agendas and management teams delivering both short-term results and long-term visions. Other challenges include increased competition, a high volume of deals, portfolio diversification, accelerated due diligence and post-merger integration, and driving alpha through productivity, operational efficiency, and scale.

E78 Partners’ financial sponsor coverage group is dedicated to serving private equity firms and their portfolio companies with a specialized, senior-led team. We offer end-to-end support throughout the transaction lifecycle, from thesis development, validation, and assessment to transaction and post-merger integration execution, value creation, and exit.

Utilizing an industry-centric approach, along with data-driven insights and operational expertise, we collaborate closely with sponsors and management teams to increase enterprise value and mitigate risk. With our roots deeply planted in private equity, our culture and values emphasize delivering quantifiable outcomes that yield substantial and enduring positive effects for our clients.
