Dry Powder: The Private Equity Podcast
Bain & Company released its midyear private equity report today, and it includes a few early indicators of what appears to be a V-shaped recovery. Of course, the Covid-19 crisis is still raging, and how it will unfold is anybody’s guess.
What we do know is that the crisis has forced three broad trends to the forefront of many private equity houses.
First, sector expertise is now more important than ever.
Second, scrutinize the underwriting for every deal.
Third, get ready to go virtual.
On today’s episode of Dry Powder, I’ll explain why private equity firms will likely have to grapple with these three broad trends in the second half of 2020 and into 2021 as well.
In our new podcast series, Bain's Hugh MacArthur interviews leading experts on the trends and opportunities that will redefine the private equity industry.
