Back in the day, success for private equity firms was achieved – and measured -- by buying well, selling well, and engineering leverage well. Over time, as competition and prices increased, private equity firms increasingly needed to demonstrate operational value creation to achieve target returns.
Over the past decade, dozens of firms have built this capacity in-house by recruiting full-time “operating partners” to both launch new operating teams and expand existing ones.
However, after a decade of consistent growth for the role, we seem to be at an inflection point.
For example, some firms are adding operating partners, while others are scaling back their internal teams and/or moving toward the use of more outside resources. Also for example, you’d think common standards would have emerged for how firms structure the OP position, not to mention better define what’s expected of them.
To support this discussion, Jay Bartlett and his PE team at Parthenon-EY, Ernst & Young LLP have conducted interviews with numerous dealmaking and operating professionals across the PE industry. Jay will be sharing the results during his keynote address.
To understand the evolution of the role of operating partners in today’s PE climate, Register now to attend the Capital Roundtable’s 14th Annual conference on “Best Practices for Creating Value in PE Portfolio Companies,” being held in New York City on Thursday, May 11th.
Firms continue to think through the types of operating expertise they need on their teams -- industry specific, geographic, or functional -- and where they want their operating partners to focus – e.g., cross-portfolio or deep dives on individual companies.
Operating models are also in flux as regulators and limited partners scrutinize how private equity firms charge for deploying operating professionals. With clear compensation structures yet to emerge, there’s the ongoing question of how to set goals and measure an operating professional’s performance.
It’s a moment of soul searching for many operating partners and the firms that employ them, as the industry thinks about --
As the need for operating improvements takes root industry-wide, firms with more mature portfolio companies are asking themselves how to best deploy their operating teams. Ironically, some of these companies were acquired from other PE firms with their own operational expertise.
