Why private equity operating partners matter


The role of the operating partner has evolved greatly in the past decade. As private equity firm leaders have realized that financial engineering is no longer sufficient to produce attractive returns, operating professionals have become an essential part of the private equity investment process. Today, operational professionals are responsible for a greater component of private equity strategies and fund performance than ever before.

Produced in partnership with Privcap, the 2015 Operating Partners Yearbook features insight from experts at Bain Capital, Siguler Guff, Baird Capital, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Riverside, Sun Capital, Korn Ferry and RSM. They explore a wide range of topics related to operating partners and private equity portfolio operations.
