IPEM Private Equity Survey

With the support of 11 national associations, IPEM conducted the first pan-European survey to gauge the mood of the private capital industry, 383 GPs from the continent gave their views as we enter 2019…

Key topics addressed:

  • The business environment in Europe in 2019
  • Top macro / industry risks
  • Fundraising sources and issues
  • Dealmaking environment, valuations and trending industries
  • Private capital reputation
  • Top internal priorities


“European private equity is for sure expecting some turbulences in 2019. Interestingly though, the industry is very confident about its prospects – even more than ever perhaps! This proves that it is now a mature asset class, ready to take advantage of misvaluation opportunities” Antoine Colson, Managing Director of IPEM

Our standard Non Disclosure Agreement

In the context of each transaction, substantial resources are being spent on the conclusion of non-disclosure agreements both on seller’s and (potential) acquirer’s side. Although each transaction has its particularities, we see a trend towards convergence on several terms and conditions of NDAs. Based on these customary terms and conditions, the BVA Tax & Legal Committee has prepared a well-balanced non-disclosure agreement template responding to the prime concerns of the disclosing and receiving party.

The template can be used in both a VC and PE context. Except for some particular details that are still to be filled in, we would hope that no substantial modification and negotiation will be required.

We herewith kindly invite you, as investors or intermediaries, to use the template.
