The private equity industry currently enjoys an unprecedented opportunity to leverage rapid globalization and a period of strong corporate liquidity. At the same time, the past several years of economic and business volatility have resulted in an increasingly complex business landscape, including new legal and regulatory challenges. As a result, private equity firms are experiencing longer hold times for portfolio companies, and an altered market for acquisition and divestitures. In addition, the limited partner community desires additional transparency and comfort around the private equity firms in which they invest.
FTI Consulting professionals work closely with some of the most dynamic companies in the private equity industry, helping them anticipate and effectively navigate through these challenges. Private Equity experts at FTI Consulting help clients to minimize risks in all phases of the private equity transaction and maximize future deal returns. FTI Consulting offers critical services that add value to each phase of the transaction, from the early stages of due diligence through portfolio company transitional periods and through portfolio performance management and, ultimately, divestiture.
