We are pleased to launch our third sector report for 2022, focusing on four key themes within the business services sector.
Since 2010, business services has been one of the most popular sectors for private equity investment, accounting for 12% of investment value and 23% of deals globally. Given the variety of industries it serves the business services sector continues to make a significant contribution to the UK economy, and despite the challenges presented by the current macro-economic climate, there is still potential for growth in the sector from the wide range of companies who are looking to disrupt, innovate and lead the markets they operate in. With that brings a wealth of opportunities.
We believe there are four key themes that will continue to attract investment and lead the way for the future success in the sector including, Built Environment Management; Education, Training & People; Governance, Risk & Compliance; and Business Process Outsourcing. In this report we outline the key drivers and challenges of each theme, whilst highlighting the experience from our own portfolio – including case studies from Orbis Protect, Future Industrial Services, Meet, Prohire, ICP, Cutwel and Abbey Logistics.
