The role of Private Equity

With higher returns to shareholders than most major markets and a strong resistance to economic turmoil, healthcare remains an attractive investment opportunity to Private Equity houses from all over the globe – the UK is far from being an exception.

Recent figures released by Laing Buisson in 2019 reflect that the UK private healthcare market is more attractive to Private Equity firms that ever before; the number of major Private Equity backed transactions reaching a new high of 25 deals in 2018, compared with just 8 in 2015.

For Private Equity firms, an improvement in quality is inherent in ensuring that the investment is successful. This model, in a highly regulated industry with public media profiles ensures that their activities, governance and principles are aligned with public interest.

At Compass Executives we have a track record of working with many leading Private Equity houses. Through this we are well versed in what talent is attractive and the attributes required to work in this growth orientated environment.
