KPMG offers a combined approach, helping our clients with strategic, deal and portfolio management issues.

Our combined approach helps clients with strategic, deal and portfolio management issues.

These are interesting times for private equity houses. Fundraising has become a matter of proven exits and operational improvement initiatives through periods of investment. Australian investors are reviewing their private equity allocations because of regulatory changes such as MySuper. This has resulted in the need for houses to head offshore for funds. Even with the gradual increase in merger and acquisition (M&A) activity globally, the scope for the private equity house to leverage transactions aggressively is reduced.

In today's market a new focus on building value and managing performance from existing assets emerges. Private equity houses are likely to need a wider range of skills at their disposal than is necessary purely for deals.

Therefore, the services our clients traditionally expect from us have broadened beyond the deal and taken on a longer-term context.
