The Evening Standard quotes Rebecca Burford on the UK private equity market

Two takeover deals of stock market listed companies worth a combined £3.7 billion are said to be nearing fruition today, with analysts predicting that many more bids are likely as private equity funds hunt for cheap UK companies.

The Evening Standard quotes Rebecca Burford, Partner, on the UK private equity market and how it is faring in 2023.

Rebecca comments:

“While we did observe a bit of a slowdown in private equity last year, this followed a record year for dealmaking in 2021. The reality is that private equity has been going strong for quite some time and remained an attractive investment even last year. Private equity leading the way this year is not just down to opportunism and other dealmakers worrying about a banking crisis. Even without the concerns of a potential banking crisis, PE would still be booming.”
