Private Equity in the age of AI

The emergence of data-driven private equity firms shows the transformative effect AI is having on the industry. Primary targets are portfolio enrichment, risk management and investment research, where the advanced predictive and analytical capabilities of machine learning models can be the factor that unlocks profitable decision-making and gives investors an edge. See how ADSP is helping private equity firms to reap the rewards of embedded AI.

Executive opinion

How can we combine personal opinion with AI in private equity?

When the stakes are high, human ingenuity and experience combined with impartial, fact-driven insights of AI win you the game. Data science and AI can help you to narrow down the field of investment opportunities to a few dozen, rather than thousands. Moreover, AI can help you identify cross-sell opportunities between portfolio companies at scale and give recommended actions to maximise incremental revenue. AI and human intuition are not incompatible - together they are driving decisions at the world's most successful PE companies.
