Here, we provide our observations of trends in Australian private equity in FY18 and our predictions for FY19.
As entire industries are facing technology disruption and changing consumer behaviour, managers with specific technology and consumer related skill-sets are in more demand. Australian private equity funds are still paying reasonably modest multiples by global standards and we are still seeing a high volume of deal opportunities and good levels of capital deployment.
We're seeing some important trends:
Non-bank financial services
Small-mid cap listed companies
Our report also addresses key fundraising themes, including what to look out for in FY19, acquisition finance trends and hot tax topics.
