Increasing value: how can PE firms maximise higher return through people?

Kiddy & Partners

The calibre of the management team is now identified by PE investors as the most common source of success with acquisitions – more important than a differentiated value-creation plan, market growth, successful new products or geographical expansion (Bain, 2021).  So how do you leverage the human capital side of investments?

Dr Charles Jones and Dr Zara Whysall will share Kiddy & Partners’ research and other findings that highlight how firms must shift from a focus on simply minimising risk, to one that goes beyond this; to a focus on maximising value through people. We believe this is a fundamental shift which will require some firms to challenge prevailing orthodoxies and fixed mindsets regarding leadership performance, potential, and development. Zara and Charles will share their thoughts on how to make this shift.
