PEN Editorial - Private Equity News
The inaugural 50 Most Influential in European Private-Equity list is Financial News’ and Private Equity News’ pick of the top deal-makers, investors, business leaders and advisers shaping the buyout market. From eye-catching investments and lucrative exits to multi-billion euro fundraisings, all 50 senior executives have been key private-equity influencers in the region over the past 18 months. Selected from a long list of almost 200 nominees, the final 50 stand out for their influence and firepower within their individual firms and the wider European market, as well as their track records—particularly in the past year. The list is not ranked. Editors: Juliette Pearse and Esther Spaarwater. Research and writing: Claire Coe Smith, William Louch, Esther Spaarwater, Juliette Pearse, Joice Alves, Ed Ballard.
