Private equity investors look to tech to drive international growth

The private equity market has remained resilient in the face of recent market uncertainty but the constantly changing international tax landscape can give rise to complex tax issues for both financial sponsors and management teams.

Amid the recent economic turmoil, private equity has been particularly active in sectors such as tech, media and comms, financial services and retail and consumer, with investors keen to harness the huge potential of technology to drive growth and international expansion.

Trusted advice at each stage

From fund formation to structuring investments and bolt-on acquisitions, management team incentives, reorganisations, re-financings and exit planning, each stage of the private equity investment lifecycle can give rise to complex tax issues often involving multiple parties - each with their own commercial and tax objectives.
