Raising Sector Strategy
to the Next Level

The Bain & Company Global Private Equity Report 2022 explored what it takes for you to excel with your sector strategy. It identified three key questions that GPs must ask themselves: are they in the right sectors? Are they seeing all the deals in their sector? And does their strategy match their approach? SPS and DealEdge can help private equity firms answer those questions in a way that has never been possible before.
