Are you ready for the next Black Swan?


Times have been good for private equity since the global financial crisis in 2009 – eight years of steady growth and easy money. However, dealmakers are increasingly nervous at how frothy the markets have become. Full prices and growing financial and geopolitical tensions are increasing risk, even if not yet reflected in valuations.

This month’s InFocus features Humatica’s column in RealDeals magazine looking at preparing portfolio companies for a next Black Swan event.

Kind regards,
