Drawing on the insights of 150 senior executives across Asia, Europe and the Americas, this year’s research investigates the current state of play of the PE industry from the perspective of Limited Partners (LPs), General Partners (GP) and legal intermediaries and identifies predominant industry trends. The report focusses on five key areas:
- Increasing demand for more information
- Is ESG the new normal?
- The evolving role of technology
- Regulation, transparency and the move towards ILPA principles
- Outsourcing – a service becomes standard.
Onno Bouwmeister, global sector head, private equity, at Vistra commented,
“Despite the understandable concerns shown by the research – notably around data demands, technology shortcomings and cybersecurity – the private equity industry showed clear optimism in a number of areas. Not only was co-investment flagged as a key trend in the market, along with the increasing number of debt options and a trend towards larger fund sizes, 55% of respondents also felt that opportunities were being created more broadly. We believe that drivers such as ESG and the move to transparency will keep the sector moving forward.”
We thank all who took part in the research for their time and input. Over the coming weeks we will explore the research further and delve into the key themes with more commentary and analysis. Follow Vistra’s social media channels for more updates.
