Tweaking the PE Business Model


March 5, 2015

A new study from Roland Berger reveals a strong view that the PE business model needs some changes, according to the views of the 800 professionals in Europe polled for the report. It is the first time ever that three quarters of PE professionals no longer believe in the robustness of the current business model or are at least neutral toward it (2014: 64%). Financial engineering is definitely not in favor, according to the study, with 95% saying that active involvement in (major) business decisions of the portfolio companies is a key tactic. Roland Berger suggests that the sentiment is largely driven by an outlook on lower levels of M&A activity in the European market this year. (Image source: Roland Berger)
