The Search for Growth

Many economies are experiencing limited growth this year, if any at all. Private Equities need to be adept at looking beyond boundaries in the relentless pursuit of growth.
Accessing international markets, businesses, investors, consumers and potential acquirers are now all fundamental strategies for PEs and their portfolios in order to exceed their returns objectives.
This Grant Thornton study interviewed 143 top executives from private equity firms from five principal regions: Western Europe, North America, BRICS, Asia Pacific and MENA (Middle East, North Africa including Turkey).
Key Findings:
  • Indonesia, Peru, Columbia and Turkey top the list of “high growth” new markets where private equity is likely to see the most opportunities


  • Deal activity expected to slow in China and India


  • Foreign trade buyers seen as most likely exit route, notably those from Japan, China and Korea


  • Dramatic drop in fundraising confidence and economic outlook.
