Financial investments are in demand – now more than ever
The tense situation in supply chains is also keeping the private equity industry on edge. Added to the overriding issue of digitization is a new aspect: resilience – in the form of a crisis-resistant production and rapid adaptability.
Today, financial engineering alone is no longer enough to leverage the great potential of investments. Instead, the task at hand today is to harmonize existing systems, optimize organizations, and achieve the sustainability goals that have been set. To make this a reality, a profound understanding of what is happening on the factory floor is required.
Yours Christoph Wurst,
Background and framework of the study
For the “Private Equity” study, we surveyed a total of 200 top-level executives in Germany (shareholders, board members and managing directors) in 2021. Of these, about half of them were from the industrial sector, 18 percent are from retail and 31 percent were from the service sector.
Feel free to get in touch with us.
The study results are optimistic; companies are open to private equity. However, this does not mean that financial investors have in-depth knowledge of what goes on behind the factory gates.
Yet, only if partners are on equal footing with mutual respect can the mix of entrepreneurial creativity and financial expertise with a strong capital base realize its full potential. We would be happy to work as your “interpreters.”
I am looking forward to speaking with you.
