Investing in fragmented markets in the UK

To invest successfully in any geography, it is essential to understand its context thoroughly. This understanding allows to identify long-term trends and select the best managers within a chosen strategy. As previously discussed, strategies benefiting from structural tailwinds significantly reduce investment risk, as inherent momentum not only enhances returns when investments are well executed, but…

Example of an investment in the Nordics

As we have seen in previous editions of the newsletter, in the Lower-Mid Market (“LMM”) segment of the private equity market, managers’ performance is often heavily influenced by whether their strategy is appropriate within the macroeconomic context of the country in which they invest. This is explained by the strong link to the real economy…

SMEs make up about 60% of the economy, yet less than 15% of the Private Equity market provides capital to these types of companies. This creates…

Regional or pan-European funds?

Building on the insights from our last newsletter, this time we will analyze the dispersion of results within each Private Equity asset class by focusing on the geographical scope in which they operate. It is important for investors in this type of asset, commonly known as “Limited Partners” or “LPs”, to develop a strategy that…

Generalist or specialist funds?

Previous editions of this newsletter have highlighted the variation in performance within each asset class. To achieve consistent, high returns, private equity investors (also known as “Limited Partners” or “LPs”) must develop a strategy for selecting the best-performing managers (referred to as “General Partners” or “GPs”). This means targeting those managers that consistently deliver top…

Accessing private equity markets

As we have covered in previous editions of this newsletter, private equity is one of the most attractive investment asset classes in terms of both returns and risk profile.
