FOCUS ON: Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC)

In recent years, private equity drove global growth in private markets. Most recently, the majority of funds flowed into Buyout, followed by Venture, and then Growth. While PE fundraising has cooled off in the second quarter of 2022, PE firms of all stripes are sitting on unprecedented cash reserves. Some in the industry see this as the best time to invest in strategic initiatives, and PE companies will be forced to invest if they do not want to lose advantage.

This opens opportunities for executives, and we would strongly suggest that career changers consider exploring the PE universe in their career plans.
