Private Equity and M&A Trends for 2022

The pandemic created opportunities and challenges for the private equity industry – and 2021 was a big year for PE investment. What will we see in 2022? Trends to look for include:

  • Even larger acquisitions as fund sizes swell and more money needs to be put to work
  • An uptick in the GP Stakes model as larger firms build out affiliate networks by investing in small and mid-market PE firms so they can focus on larger acquisitions
  • New spin-off opportunities made available as corporations conduct carve-outs and break ups to enhance shareholder value
