Our expertise

A rising number of investment firms are building dedicated value creation teams to drive the transformation of the businesses they invest into, led by experts in digitisation, pricing strategies, supply chain re-engineering, new market entry and beyond. 

PER is continually developing these specialist networks and candidate pools to support expansionary clients.

Dedicated portfolio managers spend their time working closely with management teams monitoring company performance and helping them achieve their goals and ultimately secure an exit.

PER has been finding and placing portfolio managers for the last 30 years.

The growing importance of Buy & Build strategies is increasing demand from our clients for dedicated M&A professionals working within individual portfolio companies. Our network of investment bankers at large and smaller banks, as well as active boutiques, gives us access to a talent pool eager to be part of these fast-growing businesses, working closely with sponsors and often closely involved in the integration and development of each business as well as the M&A pipeline.

Client Story

A rapidly growing private equity backed healthcare platform, headquartered away from any financial centre, required an experienced Head of M&A. Using our networks and advanced recruitment technologies we filled this role in three weeks.
