Private Equity

Driving value for private capital investors.

Private equity (PE) firms operate in ever-changing and competitive environments, facing challenges in every aspect of their business, from fundraising to sourcing deals and executing investments to planning for successful exits. Yet, many PE funds and portfolio companies don’t have the bandwidth or expertise to manage day-to-day operations, governance and compliance while delivering value and driving growth. RGP helps PE clients respond to evolving economic and regulatory conditions with an agile pool of talent and expertise.

Our PE consultants understand the market and have the right skills and experience to drive value throughout the entire transaction lifecycle. We act as an extension of a PE Fund’s operating partner model, serving as a trusted advisor to the fund or working alongside the C-suite in portfolio companies. We build strong relationships and provide continuous, proactive communication to help you understand and execute the right solution for your situation.

Our Approach

There are many value creation strategies and there isn’t a one size fits all. RGP’s Private Equity professionals offer the subject matter expertise, strategies and solutions to help you operate with agility in a dynamic environment. Our experienced and agile consulting model allows us to scale execution teams up and down to deliver value at every stage.

Finance and Accounting 
Whether you need strategic guidance to improve finance operations or need help with niche or one-off accounting tasks, RGP offers flexible, experienced consultants who understand the unique challenges of the PE space. We can identify areas of improvement in month-end close, FP&A, reporting and technology enablement options while we execute time-sensitive finance initiatives. Our consultants bring industry-leading processes, tools and templates by standardizing and introducing economies of repetition to project execution.

Transaction Support and Integration Management 
RGP enables rapid business outcomes by bringing together the human elements that maximize deal value and Return on Change. We can assess and evaluate the people, processes and technology associated with a transaction, roadmap the current and future state of the business, and execute the plan.

Data Analytics and Data Governance 
Use your data to derive an operating edge from the investment close stage through ownership. RGP helps private equity firms with end-to-end planning, strategy, program implementation, monitoring and assessment services built around the knowledge areas framework of the Data Management Association International.
