The new financial year has started well for Pacific Strategy and our clients, and since the election result became clear, we have seen renewed business confidence. There has been a significant uptake in private equity work, as political risk has decreased, improving the climate for successful exits and the deployment of new capital.
The fourth annual AVCAL/Pacific Strategy Partners Deal Metrics Survey of private equity and venture capital activity is now available. This activity covers $77.7b worth of transactions conducted by 170 funds between FY06-FY12.
We also conducted 30 interviews to gauge the industry's recent performance and future outlook.
