The Deloitte Africa Private Equity Confidence Survey (PECS) provides insights into how private equity (PE) practitioners view the African PE landscape, specifically their future expectations over the next 12 months, as well as regional macroeconomic perspectives across East, North, Southern, and West Africa.
In this edition we also provide expert insights about the correlation between environmental, social and governance (ESG) scores and the value of a company, bridging value gaps in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions, and understanding distressed assets and restructuring.
