GP Operations Compendium: Making the complex simple
INSIGHT ARTICLE |
If one word describes the nature of running a private equity firm today, it’s complexity. It was never simple, of course, but a range of forces have conspired to make it increasingly difficult to make great investments and run a great firm. Regulations can be onerous, but that’s just one part of the story; there are increasing challenges concerning issues well beyond red tape. Taxation, success planning, employee relations, selling management interests, technology adoption and cybersecurity are just a few of the issues that are quickly expanding the job description of today’s C-suite executives.
Produced in partnership with Privcap, the GP Operations Compendium 2017 a series of articles, interviews and panel discussions about how the industry is trying to up its game and what kind of professionals are needed to do that. It’s challenging to be a successful general partner (GP), but given the potential rewards, most are investing heavily in improved firm operations. It’s no longer a choice, but a necessity.
