The Deals Dynamics_A PE/VC Impact Report

02 April 2020

Global markets tend to immediately reflect the impact of external factors like political instability, large financial scams and natural calamities. As global market chaos mounts in retaliation to the uncertainty caused by the recent coronavirus, private markets are also beginning to feel the pressure. While industries grapple with the impact of the slowdown, the PE/VC industry is believed to be equipped to alleviate pressures and has been adept to recognising potential and nurturing businesses, even amidst ambiguous circumstances. However this time, it might not be an easy sail.

To better understand the investment climate and how the PE/VC industry is responding to the slowdown, we undertook a brief survey that received 65+ responses from the community, within 4 days of the launch.

Highlighting key responses and analysis, we are happy to present ‘The Deals Dynamics’ - A report on the anticipated impact of COVID-19 on the PE/VC industry, throwing light on the investment trends in this volatile situation, concerns of budding investee companies, challenges in raising funds, key process disruptions caused by the policies adopted to curb the spread of the pandemic, and the expectations in a post COVID-19 world.
