New Report From Ernst & Young Highlights Evolution in Private Equity Firm Operations In Response To New Demands

Monday, April 29, 2013

By: Bailey McCann, Private Equity Strategies

A new report, "Positioning for an upturn: The institutionalization of private equity operations" explores how a growing economy is creating new business opportunities for the private equity industry. Authored by Ernst & Young, the report which includes interactive graphics and video, looks at the changes in the operational structure of private equity firms in response to growing regulatory and investor demands. At the same time, the shift to more complex operations requires increased sophistication of talent and resources to keep pace with client needs and compliance regulations.

These shifts offer many members of the executive team, especially private equity chief financial officers (CFOs) and chief operating officers (COOs), an invaluable opportunity to increase their visibility and clout within their organizations.

"Nearly every firm is now faced with choosing the most effective tools, technologies and operational processes to support their people over the next several years," said Samer Ojjeh, a principal in the Financial Services Office of Ernst & Young LLP. "Executives need to keep in mind an important facet: the transformation of an organization's operating model is not a process that will ever really be 'complete.'"
