Why Private Equity Firms Need a Competitive Edge

Competition in the private equity game has continued to heat-up over the past few years as more capital has flowed in, leading to higher prices for fewer deals. The industry is now sitting on an unprecedented $2 trillion of untapped potential.

Deal sourcing is often the most critical stage in the deal cycle for gaining a competitive advantage. The traditional sourcing process is ineffective, with firms closing an average of 3 or less deals a year from the estimated thousand opportunities that they evaluate. With such a low deal-closing rate, private equity firms need to step-up their game to remain competitive. 


How do you gain an advantage in deal sourcing? 

Firms can optimize their origination process and gain crucial insights by embracing digital tools and data analytics. Traditional manual-based processes cannot keep-up with the speed and volume of information being created every day.
