Portfolio Company Advisory
The quality of the management team of an investment is the most important variable to achieving a good exit outcome.
Finding the right team to lead a turnaround, transformation or growth strategy is essential to meeting investor expectations for returns. We have assessed and placed executives at portfolio companies globally for the largest private equity houses. We understand what makes a good leadership team in a leveraged environment and work with the general partners and the portfolio company to build the right team for success.
Building an Investment Team
We understand the unique culture of private equity and identify and assess individuals who fit this culture.
Exceptional dealmakers have a rare combination of commercial acumen, relationship-building skills, experience and personal characteristics that drive long-term value creation. We work extensively with a range of general partners to build and grow their investment team by leveraging our networks across geographies and industries. Similarly, we advise our clients on their own succession issues as they look to hand off control to the next generation of partners in the fund.
Best-in-Class Investor Relations
We secure top investor relations talent by leveraging our networks across funds, limited partners, investment consultants and placement agents. As limited partners look to rationalize their exposure to private equity investments, faultless investor relations is critical to ensure that investors re-up, as well as win new sources of investment capital.
Professional Corporate Center
We recruit, develop and advise leaders who can make operations run smoothly. As general partners grow and mature, the need to institutionalize and professionalize their corporate center increases. From chief operating officers through to chief financial officers, chief risk officers and compliance leaders, we help our clients build their international functions.
