Private Equity professionals must be equipped with very diverse, interdisciplinary skill sets. A top education and high level of technical skills are indispensable. The differentiator lies more in the right mix of intellectual capital, emotional intelligence, leadership excellence, intercultural competence, and the ability to be a superior networker.
Human Capital is therefore the key success factor for a fruitful investment. Accordingly, assessing managerial competence and integrity are of paramount importance in the PE environment.
Besides the assessment of the management team, organization and remuneration structure, a PE Investor will also overhaul the values, motivation and intentions of the key management and scrutinize their potential for the future journey.
Once a PE firm has invested in a company, the investment has to be managed. A PE professional takes a place on the board, responsible for controlling the finances, monitoring the strategy and reporting accordingly. Additionally, they are on call for frequent management audits and hiring of top management.
