Our recent conversations with Professor Gonzalez, ahead of his attendance at the COP15 of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity last month, highlighted for us the growing importance of biodiversity, not just to the environment, but also to the economies that are dependent upon it. In 2020, both The World Economic Forum and Swiss Re estimated that over 50% of global GDP is exposed to the risks associated with biodiversity loss. With the Food and Land Use Coalition’s Growing Better report forecasting a biodiversity and nature-first corporate business market to be worth over $1 trillion by 2030, it is no surprise that biodiversity related opportunities are already catching the eye of more progressive companies. We see that technology is set to play a leading role in helping businesses and their realise some of that commercial opportunity. This report highlights some of those critical early indicators and value enhancing opportunities.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a ninth pillar in our IT Due Diligence process, which identifies and generates value creation opportunities for private equity (PE) investors. This new pillar is designed to uncover additional levers for growth and drive both immediate 100-day plans and long-term digital value creation initiatives.  

The private equity (PE) landscape has seen better days. M&A activity is down, and exits have plummeted to their lowest point in over a decade, dropping 66% from their peak in 2021. High interest rates have made refinancing debt structures from as far back as 2019 increasingly expensive. As a result, exits are becoming more protracted, and many buyout funds are struggling to offload portfolio companies amid an uncertain environment that negatively impacts valuations. Now more than ever, there is a pressing need to maximise the value of existing portfolios.
