The Private Equity Network brings together the strong local expertise of leading European mid-market private equity firms with the primary aim of building international portfolio companies.
The main priorities of the Private Equity Network are to:
- Assist with European buy-and-build projects: increasingly, European mid-market companies are looking to build their presence outside their national territories. PEN members will help each other’s portfolio companies to expand within Europe and globally through their respective sector knowledge and network of local advisers and experts;
- Promote portfolio companies and identify build-up opportunities outside Europe: PEN members will leverage their existing strong relationships with private equity firms, suppliers, managers, intermediaries and consultants;
- Share sector expertise and best practice portfolio management techniques, including operational improvement and management know-how; and
- Identify opportunities for cross-border co-operation.
