MSCI & Burgiss - Assessing Private Equity Investments Effectively

Private Equity firms are facing new challenges in times of COVID-19 lockdowns and supply chain disruption. They are affected to a varying extent by the pandemic including barriers to deal execution due to difficulties in conducting due diligence face-to-face, with some companies classified as mission critical before pandemic revealing new weaknesses under COVID-19.

For an investor the ever challenging landscape of Private Equity requires a broader analysis of factors that drive the risk and return of these assets. With limited information and the lack of sophisticated models, investors can be left blindsided without such clear guidance at their disposal.
