Competition to acquire high quality assets has never been so intense. In this environment, to be successful in transacting new business, private equity firms need to become more efficient than in the past.

Financial sponsors need to be more thorough and more comprehensive in their due diligence, yet at the same time also need to act quickly. From a corporate or management team perspective, the private equity landscape is now a complex, crowded market and picking the right strategic partner is a challenging decision.

How Grant Thornton can help

For financial sponsors we offer the opportunity to draw on our insight and experience to find and back dynamic fast-growing companies. Our deep sector knowledge will help you find the right portfolio companies to participate in the fastest growing segments of the market. We have invested in deal origination, creating a team capable of finding exciting new opportunities for you to invest in.

We offer a comprehensive service range, helping you address all the issues that are likely to arise in a transaction: from financial modeling, through due diligence and debt advisory to tax. We bring a depth of service to the mid-market that is normally only found on large-cap deals and operate as a single deal team, collaborating with you to successfully conclude the transaction.

Our approach to evolving trends in the private equity market is dynamic. US private equity firms are increasingly active in the UK mid-market alongside their UK and European peers and the strength of our international network allows corporates to tap into these new sources of capital.

We have a specialist Private Equity tax group led by David Hewitt which provides a full range of tax services to our Private Equity clients including fund and carry structuring, tax advice on deals and tax compliance for Private Equity funds, their portfolio investments and the individual deal executives.
