The Benefits of Private Equity

Private equity enables companies to better exploit their potential. With the capital that private equity firms and their funds provide, they can drive their development and remain independent. In addition, private equity firms generally bring their expertise and excellent contacts to the portfolio companies, which they can employ to their advantage. That enables growth and strengthens a company’s innovative capacity and competitiveness.
Comparisons with listed or family-run companies show that businesses financed by private equity exhibit stronger growth, pursue a more targeted strategy and have a better financing structure. Not least, they secure existing jobs and create new ones through their growth.
