This week unquote has a review of Family Office and PE trends, discussing the results of an Investec survey. It quotes the survey author’s comment that the survey raised a lot of questions in addition to revealing insight into Family Office investment preferences.
It says that the respondents desire to see more deals in the oil and gas sector and that they are “hugely optimistic” hoping to complete one to five deals this year in the face of a lack of quality deals and fairly low dealflow.
Most surveyed view fewer than 20 investment opportunities per year. Investec said it all comes down to dealflow and without access to high quality deal origination, expertise and desire alone will not complete successful deals. Find the Investec survey report here. (Image source: Unquote)
