Is transparency heightening Private Equity’s interest in outsourcing?

2 December 2020
For at least a few years before the pandemic, many private equity firms were looking to outsource certain services to provide operating efficiencies and lower costs.

In our current reality of remote work and continued global economic headwinds, this strategy has become even more widespread. Here at Vistra, we’ve seen an increased number of outsourcing projects, and those projects are becoming greater in scale.

In a recent article for Private Equity International, our global sector head of private equity Onno Bouwmeister, and our US-based group commercial director Malcolm Pobjoy talk about the drive for transparency and how it is heightening private equity managers’ interest in outsourcing. They point out that all firms should consider the importance of collaboration, which is a key to corporate governance success.

They also address outsourcing growth areas, the types of governance GPs should consider when looking to outsource, developing a business case for outsourcing, and more. Read the full interview here.
