Panel: Private equity – evolving in uncertainty

The private equity market in the US remains challenging, amidst a backdrop of continued inflationary pressures, a higher interest rate environment and market volatility affecting the industry. Despite this, private equity firms are still looking to deploy US$2tn of dry powder, and dealmakers are taking advantage of new sources of deal flow, such as take-privates and acquiring struggling listed companies. As the PE industry continues to adapt to changing circumstances, GPs will find different ways to enhance portfolio company performance, unlock liquidity for investors, and explore avenues for new deals and exit opportunities. Our panel of seasoned GPs and PE experts will unpack the coming year ahead and discuss fundraising, deployment, exit activity and more.

  • Macroeconomic outlook: Amidst ongoing public market and geopolitical volatility, where are the pockets of opportunity in private equity, and what is driving deal flow locally and regionally, especially as more GPs set up shop in Miami?  
  • Buyout vs middle-market – is the latter picking up speed as buyout volume falls?
  • Enhancing deal flow: will there be a rise in take privates and listco acquisitions, and what other trends have been emerging as GPs adapt to a slower deal market?
  • Will exit challenges remain in 2024, and what is the outlook for the year ahead?
