Unlike past years, private equity funds operating in Brazil are now facing a more challenging market environment for the growth of portfolio companies. The present scenario has compelled leaders to favor management initiatives crafted to minimize risks in such uncertain times. A number of fund managers have become more involved in their investors’ concerns and routine, while the role of management has become increasingly relevant to the success of the investment thesis. Funds, as a whole, have realized the need to bring about important changes in portfolio strategy and policies in order to enhance performance. Among the measures to achieve such targets are the replacement of the CEO and/or other key executives, who may also happen to be business partners. The private equity market has consistently relied on FLOW to make this move within the companies and take the businesses to peak performance with the help of the new hires.
