FOCUS ON: Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC)
In recent years, private equity has added significant fuel to the executive job market. While PE fundraising has cooled off in the second half of 2022 for many segments, PE firms are still 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
Private Money in Your Future
Dry Powder (Part 1)
So when did the rise of PE and VC companies begin? And how does this compare to public companies? In this article, we explain the fundamentals of Private Equity (PE).
Who’s Who and What’s What (Part 2)
We recount who is who in the industry with particular focus on the underlying portfolio companies (where the true executive opportunities lie).
Life After Landing (Part 3)
Private Equity and Venture Capital are not immune to macroeconomics. Fundraising has indeed declined in 2022, however, PE & VC are incredibly resilient. We share how our clients have landed in PE portfolio companies of late.
Be Part of The Bigger Picture (Part 4)
This fourth article will back off about 30,000 feet and look at the bigger picture. We will then return to earth and consider what all of this means for executives considering a career change.
Fight or Flight (Part 1)
It is understandable when executives who might like to make a professional change hesitate in light of the current news headlines – and miss on the action. Those who do would be well advised to access the full market, as our clients do, and be seven times more likely to succeed than working with an executive recruiter alone.
Turmoil in Tech (Par 2)
Tech stocks had a rough year in 2022: the tech-heavy NASDAQ index was down 33% (versus the overall S&P 500’s decline of “just” 20%). Consumer confidence fell in the first half and negatively impacted tech revenues before recovering. Interest rates rose, further dampening the party. All in all, it wasn’t pretty.
When minus 26.8% is the best performance in a peer group, clearly the group’s performance was dismal. And yet, that is how 2022 shook out for big tech stocks.
This is a market at a crossroads. While the demand for fossil fuels will continue, it will also decline. We will attempt in this Update to facilitate transparency in both of these markets.
