Private Equity is going through one of the most complex stages in recent years, facing challenges such as the difficulty in identifying good investment opportunities and the enormous competition level. That, together with the excess liquidity, makes transaction multiples boost and therefore makes purchase price become the main obstacle to closing more deals.
Nevertheless, Private Equity has become a very attractive sector for executives from different industries, both to join the investment teams and to become a member of some of their portfolio companies.
Altum Advisors' consultants have more than 20 years of experience in this sector, advising international principal investors as well as regional and local private equity firms around the world. We therefore understand the different needs that arise throughout the life cycle of the Private Equity Deal:
Presentation of investment opportunities: thanks to our extensive network and qualified level of access, we have the ability to connect owners and management teams with private equity firms to match investment opportunities in different sectors. This access also allows us to perform detailed market intelligences in which we delve into sectors, companies, trends, organizational structures, identification of key executives, potential candidates, etc.
Assessments: we carry out evaluations of the management team, allowing the private equity firm to know in an independent and unbiased way the benefits and areas of improvement of the company. It has been proven that counting on the right management team is on of the main causes of success of a private equity investment. These assessments can be either face-to-face or referential.
Executive Search:search for executive profiles (CXOs) and their line of reporting.
Corporate Governance and Boards: we incorporate recognized professionals from the sector (or from other sectors) who provide a unique angle in the vision of the company and in the fulfillment of the business plan.
Leadership Solutions: organizational consulting, assessments, succession plans, identification of high potentials, on-boarding, training and development, coaching, etc.
