Private Equity Operations Teams Climb the Cyber Risk Maturity Curve
Private Equity (PE) is unique within the world of financial services. Unlike most investment firms, private equity players like to roll up their sleeves and take a more active role in managing and shaping the companies they invest in. With a cadre of vertical industry experts and in-house business transformation special ops teams, PEs like to focus their investment strategy on private companies with a longer, multi-year investment horizon and establish close working relationships with their portfolio company management teams. Value creation is the goal, and PE firms accomplish that through operational improvements, strategic initiatives, cost reductions, and market expansion.
