“Private equity investments often require businesses to do something they have never done before and may never do again. Berkeley’s breadth of experience in business operations and transformational change, coupled with our impartial and collaborative approach, can help you achieve real change, creating value for both investors and management teams.”

Many private equity investors encounter barriers to growth and value realisation, both pre- and post-deal. Tensions can run high on both sides of the deal. How do you ensure investors and management fully align their agendas?
The Berkeley Partnership’s private equity consulting services can help bring all stakeholders together to build from common ground and remove barriers to growth. We combine private equity consulting knowledge with deep experience in shaping and delivering complex transformational change. Our consultants help clients identify and overcome the operational challenges and realise their plans for value and growth.
Private equity firms can only act rapidly and efficiently to address operational barriers if they first understand where they lie. With our support on operational due diligence, you can identify the barriers and address them with a practical and realistic plan, considering all options and building value pre-deal.
By partnering with us, you can develop and implement the target and interim operating model states required to enable your business to get onto the necessary growth trajectory. We work with our clients to develop and deliver the operating models that are right for them, including appropriate technology enablers and the relevant people and organisational considerations.
Our consultants have the hands-on expertise to augment your team and can align multiple stakeholder groups around true value creation.
Post-deal, we can help you to create high-confidence plans to deliver the value that underpins the rationale for the transaction. This will often require additional skills and capabilities to what is in place today. We can help with key growth-enabling capabilities such as technology leadership and change management.
Berkeley’s approach to private equity consulting allows us to understand the priorities of both investors and management and focus on building trust and delivering value to both. For us, this is not a zero-sum game. We bring our impartiality and deep experience of cross-sector business operations and transformational change to provide clarity, offer informed choices, and enable change that will result in the desired outcomes.
Operational due diligence
Berkeley don't come in to tell management teams what to do. They come in and work with management teams to identify opportunities and drive change.
