Dear Reader

The European voice of private equity is «Invest Europe». With our Swiss community, we are part of the Invest Europe ecosystem. We like their work at the level of the EU commission, but also at various other levels. They are key providers of statistics, and we try to contribute as much as possible from our country. They have some convincing research, e.g. on job creation across Europe. With the «Private Equity at Work» report, Invest Europe is, for the first time, providing detailed evidence and analysis of the European private equity industry’s contribution to employment and job creation in Europe. Over time, the data will expand to create a comprehensive picture of our industry’s contribution to jobs, and the economy that those jobs support. 

Have a nice weekend !

SECA Webinar: Infrastruktur - per 1.10.2020 eine neue Anlageklasse (BVV2)

Dienstag, 20. Oktober 2020, Online

SECA Webinar: Building a Private Equity Portfolio today

Tuesday, 24 November 2020, online

Building a robust portfolio of Private Equity assets requires a long-term mind-set as well as an appreciation for the ever-changing opportunity set dictated by global mar-kets. While academic research and performance ranking tables give insights into what has occurred in previous environments, investors must make decisions today, in the face of new uncertainties. This SECA webinar, offered in cooperation with employee-owned Neuberger Berman, provides insights drawn from decades of practical experi-ence and on-the-ground global engagement. Long-term commitment to the asset class is balanced with capital efficient, tactical opportunities and an integration of ESG value creation.

COVID-19 and the Private Debt Markets

Historic magnitude of dislocation in private credit markets due to COVID-19 and the potential opportunity set going forward.

There is no doubt that news surrounding COVID-19 and the heightened volatility in the publicly traded markets due to this global pandemic have captivated nearly everyone’s attention in recent months. The private credit markets, which tend to be less thoroughly discussed, are similarly dealing with unprecedented dynamics. Over the past months, we have engaged with our partners—in a “socially distanced” manner— in hundreds of calls with the participation of portfolio companies, private equity sponsors, banks, law firms and industry experts—as well as our own investors. In this paper Benefit Street Partners outline the historic magnitude of the dislocation, provide a summary of discussions and key observations that we have shared with those partners. Finally, we share our view on what might be in store for the future of private credit. While the steadfast protection of our existing investments is at the forefront of our thinking, we are also enthusiastic about the potential opportunities that have been created for well-capitalized private debt managers. Benefit Street Partners L.L.C., a wholly owned subsidiary of Franklin Templeton, is a leading credit-focused alternative asset management firm established in 2008, managing assets across a broad range of complementary credit strategies.

European PE Breakdown

European PE deal volume came roaring back in Q3 2020, as dealmakers shifted focus to offence and were selectively aggressive in certain parts of the economy. The re-opening of leveraged lending markets, elevated dry powder levels, and resilience shown in the lower end of the market contributed to the uptick in deal volume. That said, deal activity is still considerably shy of pre-pandemic figures, and we expect a multi-year recovery that will be choppy, uneven, and uncertain, with diverging trends across regions and asset classes due to COVID-19. Exit counts are pacing towards a 10-year low, while fundraising activity gained considerable momentum in the third quarter, putting 2020 on pace for its second-highest capital-raised total in a decade.

IPO-Newsletter Q3 2020

Nach einem schwierigen, von Unsicherheit geprägten Frühjahr, setzte im zweiten Quartal schrittweise eine Aufhellung der Marktsituation ein und mit dem Abflachen der Volatilität kam wieder mehr Schwung in die globalen IPO-Märkte. Mit der weiteren konjunkturellen Erholung im dritten Quartal nahm die IPO-Aktivität weltweit verglichen mit dem Vorquartal nochmals deutlich zu: So fanden von Juli bis September in Europa und Nordamerika über 190 Transaktionen mit einem Gesamtvolumen von rund CHF 62 Milliarden statt. Bemerkenswert ist dabei die starke Zunahme von Börsengängen von Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) in Nordamerika. Mit beinahe 80 SPAC-IPOs machten die Börsengänge solcher Mantelgesellschaften fast die Hälfte aller Neuzugänge in Nordamerika im dritten Quartal aus.

Die Spin-Offs von V-Zug und Ina Invest im Juni liessen Hoffnung auf weitere Schweizer Börsengänge in der zweiten Jahreshälfte aufkeimen. Im dritten Quartal ist jedoch kein weiterer Börsengang an der SIX Swiss Exchange hinzugekommen. Angesichts der Risiken im Zusammenhang mit dem Coronavirus im Winterhalbjahr sowie dem unsicheren Ausgang der US-Präsidentschaftswahl muss gemäss Andreas Neumann, Leiter Equity Capital Markets bei der Zürcher Kantonalbank, davon ausgegangen werden, dass sich das IPO-Fenster für dieses Jahr allmählich schliessen wird.
