The Unquote team talks about the topics at the forefront of GPs’ and LPs’ minds at SuperReturn in Berlin and what this means for the private equity industry in 2023 and beyond: ranging from value creation, fundraising and private markets consolidation, to Kim Kardashian’s foray into the venture capital world.
Hosted by Harriet Matthews, Unquote’s Min Ho and Rachel Lewis digest the key takeaways from this year’s gathering of private equity practitioners in the German capital.
While much uncertainty remains around valuations and fundraising perspectives, the private equity industry is looking for ways to keep deploying and putting investors’ capital to good use.
With multiple arbitrage expectations less buoyant, GPs are also looking for ways to create value in their portfolios, be it via organic growth initiatives or bolt-ons.
We ask what all of this will mean for the second half of 2023 and beyond, bringing together the insights gleaned from conversations with market practitioners on the ground in Berlin and beyond.
