Creating Value in PE Using Advanced Analytics
Erik Einset (Global Infrastructures Partners)
Value creation in private equity investment portfolios is fundamental to delivering results for PE customers. Our focus is in the energy and transportation sectors, and by having deep understanding of how these industries work, we explore applications where advanced analytics and better use of data can create more efficient operations and growth, which translates into increased earnings and value. We will discuss how value is created and some specific use cases where we believe there are opportunities to apply advanced analytics.
