This issue opens with an analysis of the healthy inflow of new capital deployed by global General Partners into the EMEA region for the first quarter of 2019. Notably — and despite concerns over Brexit — UK targets remain attractive investments.
Next we travel to the Benelux region, which has enjoyed increased attention from financial institutions amid uncertainties around Brexit. As we note, PE capital deployed into the region has enjoyed growth since 2015, with the Information Technology sector in the Netherlands leading the way on an entry deal basis.
We then look at the global Insurance and Insurtech sector to break down the exceptional performance of EMEA-based traditional Insurers versus the relative difficulty EMEA Insurtech firms have experienced in attracting big money, especially as compared to their U.S. peers.
Finally, we examine the leveraged loan and bond market in a feature article by the Leveraged Commentary & Data (LCD). With concerns about the market’s general health casting increasingly long shadows on sentiment — and in light of the aging bull market in credit — it appears that the caution expressed in 2018 will be a driving theme into the first quarter of 2019 as well.
