Dechert’s Global PE Practice | 2020/2021 Highlights  

February 04, 2021

Notwithstanding the short, sharp shock the private equity industry experienced in the first half of 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, the industry has proven to be resilient. Consistent with this trend, Dechert’s global private equity practice successfully completed another record-breaking year in 2020. 

As detailed in Dechert’s 2021 Global Private Equity Outlook report, published in collaboration with Mergermarket, several trends, including increased investment in the healthcare, life sciences and TMT sectors, asset management diversification, the continued prominence of private credit and buoyancy of fundraising, and the rise of buy-and-build and carve-out transactions, helped define the private equity industry last year and are expected to shape it in 2021. 

In this report, we highlight some of the most exciting work we did with you, our clients, over the past year, and how it relates to larger trends in the industry. We look forward to continuing to help with your most complex private equity and alternative asset management projects in the year ahead.
