Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!
A few weeks ago, I quoted an old boss in an MMR article about a recent deal that closed through the Axial platform. “Financial alchemy can only get you so far in the world of private equity.” He’d continue, “few things trump the value of hands-on operational experience and industry expertise.”
Operational talent has and always will be a critical part of running a successful M&A strategy. If anything, the need for qualified talent has only become more pronounced since the pandemic. New challenges call for new people with the right skill set to overcome those challenges. Head down to this week’s featured Industry Trends section of Radar to read more about the difficulty of finding the right people to develop M&A capabilities in today’s economy, and other important factors for success.
Our featured buy-side members this week include a 20 year old private equity firm, a PE firm with north of $700M in AUM, and a healthcare focused investor. On the sell-side, we’ll introduce you to a Charlotte-based investment bank and an investment banking firm serving clients ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to privately held companies.
