For decades digitalisation has been on everyone's lips and driven value creation forward in the hunt for increased returns. But how is the state of digitalisation of the private equity firm itself? With digitalisation being accelerated by external factors and groundbreaking technologies now becoming increasingly available, GPs have a lot to gain from turning the attention towards digitalisation of their own operations.

Inviting best-in-class global PE executives from leading PE firms, including EQT and CD&R, this webinar will give you an inside view of the engine room of the PE firms revealing insights on how the GP can digitalise its own processes.

This webinar is lined up to prepare for an imminent transformation where digitalisation among GPs will be an industry standard. Understand the risks involved with digitalisation for GPs and benchmark your own organisation with the leading PE firms represented on this panel. Tune in to prepare your firm for a future where LPs will require technological advancements in the investment decision-making process.
