Dynamic Growth: Value Creation in Latin America
Private equity (PE) investors have come out of the recession with a renewed focus on organic revenue growth, applying a more entrepreneurial mindset to working with their portfolio companies.
Spanning six years of analysis of companies exited in Europe and North America, Ernst & Young’s studies into how PE investors create value confirm this shifting orientation towards growth and partnership with management teams. To uncover how value creation is achieved in the emerging markets, Ernst & Young and EMPEA teamed to produce this emerging markets edition of Ernst & Young’s annual “How do private equity investors create value?” study, looking specifically at Brazil and Latin America. The study revealed that private equity in the rest of the world is in fact evolving to more closely resemble the model in the emerging markets.
