Protiviti Private Equity consulting experts focus on the Private Equity firms’ deal thesis for each portfolio company, balancing strong EBITDA growth with prudent controls and compliance. Our approach is one of collaboration and communication with the PE firm and portfolio executives, always mindful of the purpose for which we are hired with an emphasis on speed, quality, ROI and client satisfaction.
Our approach to the investment lifecycle incorporates all necessary steps and addresses any potential challenges your organization will face.
Due diligence marks one of the most time-consuming and potentially costly components within the investment lifecycle. It is also one of the most important and valuable components, thanks to its acutely interdependent nature. The cost, time and effectiveness of due diligence activities are greatly influenced by the quality of the evaluation activities that precede it.
Once a transaction is completed, the focus turns to integrating the new portfolio company into the greater organization’s goals. We help in both direction-setting and 100-day planning.

We help private equity firms and their portfolio organizations manage critical business challenges to help them face the future with confidence. Here are some of the most pressing issues we are helping organizations to address.
Confidence in cybersecurity does not come from believing nothing will happen, it is achieved by knowing all the things that can happen and preparing both proactive and reactive solutions. Protiviti provides a holistic approach that defines what is most important to you, helping you protect yourself from unauthorized access and also react quickly and comprehensively when a breach occurs.
Continuously enhancing customer experience through service and technologies is requirement for organizations. Equally important is driving greater efficiency and effectiveness in the back office to thrive in changing environments. We help you to see the opportunities in fast moving markets, aligning people, processes and technology to transform your organization and help you to face the future with confidence.
Improving how you understand, organize and leverage your data assets is a business imperative. The challenge is identifying and capturing information in disparate systems and then organizing and managing this information to create business insights. Protiviti takes a pragmatic “one size does not fit all” perspective. We tailor solutions that fit your organization, enhancing business value through more efficient collection, distribution and usage of information.
Regulatory compliance expertise can be difficult to build in one company, much less a portfolio of companies. We help you anticipate and adapt to regulatory reforms and industry trends through innovative solutions that position your portfolio companies for sustainable performance and compliance now and in the future.
Faster, cheaper and better are not options for most companies, they are imperatives. In today’s competitive global environment, the ability to make and manage smart capital investments, run efficient back-office operations and manage cash flow are critical. We help you identify and implement cost management efforts while driving performance, in both good times and those more challenging.
Each stage of a transaction has unique opportunities and pitfalls. We work with you at each stage of the investment cycle to help you see more deeply into the situation, providing transaction due diligence and exit strategy/initial public offering (IPO) preparation.
In the fast-changing global market, control is critical to success. However, the demands on internal audit and finance functions continue to increase as the expectation today is not just for accurate reporting, but insights that can improve the business. We can help you steer your portfolio companies with greater precision and prescience, increasing confidence you are on the right path.
