Mid-market value creation and portfolio management

In the past two years have GPs have seen longer holding periods for their portfolio companies as well as increased competition for attractive, high-quality targets. It has therefore become increasingly essential for managers to focus on strategic and portfolio company operational improvements as a key driver of returns. This session will take a behind the scenes at how mid-market GPs are approaching value creation and portfolio management.

  • Whilst alpha-generating avenues remain challenging to access, how are GPs rewriting their value creation playbooks? What are some new value creation strategies GPs have place in order to improve performance?
  • Maximizing efficiencies through technology investments including machine learning and AI capabilities- how are GPs incorporating data and AI tools to enhance operations? Is AI a friend or a foe?
  • From supply-chain management to human capital- what value creation levers are operating partners focusing on as we head into 2024?
  • Are LPs becoming more focused on their managers’ operational capabilities?
