Inside the buy-and-build strategy

Three-part video series


More private equity firms are embracing the buy-and-build blueprint to speed up growth. The strategy is to obtain a platform company with good management and infrastructure, then build it out with add-on companies to achieve growth. A firm looking to increase revenues and get to exit can usually do it quicker via a buy-and-build approach than by organic growth, which means the firm can find success with shorter holding periods. 

Learn more about this growth strategy as leading professionals share their insights in a three-part video series produced by Privcap and sponsored by RSM.
