Our Private Equity consulting approach


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.

The investment lifecycle starts with Due Diligence activities relating to IT, finance & accounting, compliance, and operations. Next in the lifecycle is Integration where we assist in direction setting and 100-day planning. From there, we work directly with portfolio companies’ executives to improve their operations in business performance, IT, internal audit, compliance, and financial management. The last step in the investment lifecycle is Divestiture/Exit. We assist in sell-side due diligence and exit strategy – whether it be via IPO, strategic acquisition, or secondary sale.

Due diligence


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. We help Private Equity Firms on a full breadth of issues from minor negotiating points to major deal-breakers.
