Private Equity Fund Outlook
In search of firm footing
Current world developments and macro-economic trends signal that 2013 may be a challenging year, both in the U.S. and abroad. But with assets under management now reaching $3 trillion, the private equity industry has some positive momentum as it heads into the New Year and seems in good position to respond to whatever may lie ahead.
Given marketplace uncertainties, however, careful choices and deliberate action may be needed to help ensure continuing business success. With this in mind, Deloitte’s 2013 Private Equity Fund Outlook explores three strategies that will likely shape the private equity fund industry priorities in the New Year and beyond:
- A keen focus on responding to the evolving regulatory landscape and meeting the expectations and demands of regulators, shareholders, and other stakeholders
- The tactical pursuit of growth opportunities, perhaps through increased deal activity and cash infusions as well as emerging marketing
- A renewed focus on operational excellence across many business functions in order to help reduce costs and risks
We expect successful private equity funds to find their footing as they shift their focus and adapt to new market realities.
