The lengthening of the average period of time for which private equity funds invest in companies requires professionals who pay more attention to the industrial aspects of the company than the financial ones.
In Italy in 2015 amounts raised by private equity funds almost doubled, and with resources invested increasing by over 30%; almost half of these originate from international investors. This is a sign of interest in our country.
Key2people works on behalf of domestic and international funds with the companies they hold in their portfolio, uniting expertise in various business sectors (manufacturing, retail, fashion, digital, financial services, etc.) with a knowledge of the Private Equity landscape and the specific skills which managers need, such as a focus on working capital, cost reduction, increasing the business, etc.
We also work with Private Equity funds for the hiring into these organisations of investment professionals and pre-/post-acquisition operating partners.
