How Citrin Cooperman Can Help

With the increase in the regulation and taxation of private equity, hedge funds, and other investment vehicles participants in the private equity arena may raise their compliance costs, reduce their returns, and limit the number of investment activities companies can undertake. Industry regulation is expected to continue to increase.  Also under the Trump administration, a greater number of private equity firms are viewing the investment environment as favorable. In addition, fund managers are looking towards IPOs as the most profitable exit strategy.

We’ve also noted several challenges that may affect investors in the industry:

  • While investor sentiment towards private equity is positive, there remain a number of challenges facing investors in this asset class. High valuations for portfolio companies remain the number one concern. Combined with record levels of dry powder and stiff competition for assets, investors are increasingly concerned about the impact high pricing will have on returns in future.
  • With valuations high, the exit environment has also become a key issue for the industry, with investors concerned that it may become more difficult for fund managers to realize their investments at current valuations.
