August 10, 2016
In the wake of Brexit, the complexity of the investment scene in Europe for private equity firms has only been compounded, as they must grapple with how even the protracted process of the UK exiting the EU may affect investing periods. Meanwhile, economic growth remains sluggish and banking systems troubled, with Italy in particular facing significant problems. Surveying a wide range of datasets—from private equity investment by sector to continent-wide, quarterly deal flow—in order to provide a comprehensive, compact overview of the current European PE scene, this latest European PE Breakdown forecasts what is in store for the industry. Sponsored by Merrill Corporation, the European PE Breakdown also includes datasets on PE-backed exits and fundraising, as well as a spotlight on PE activity in the DACH region.
