Directions in private equity - the key trends in the Australian market


The Australian private equity market enjoyed a strong 2015-16, with a significant increase in M&A levels. Activity in the healthcare sector increased substantially, while more broadly, the volume of M&A deals increased by 18% and deal value increased by 8%.

While the last quarter of the year saw private equity deal activity fall off - due to factors including macroeconomic instability and political uncertainty - the beginning of 2016-17 has seen numbers start to climb again.

This report provides a snapshot of current and emerging trends, with supporting commentary on transactions, fundraising and acquisition financing.
