Monitoring and managing political risk across the global private equity firm’s portfolio.

Permira is a global private equity firm with a significant number of investments across a number of sectors. Within the UK a number of investments operated within regulated or shifting policy environments that required monitoring.

Montfort put in place effective monitoring of regulatory and policy landscapes affecting UK investments as well as political risk analysis to ensure Permira and its deal teams were consistently informed of potential risks or opportunities.  In certain situations, flagged issues brought forward more comprehensive briefings and issues management, especially within the financial services sector.

Permira gained valuable portfolio insight and laid the foundations for strong and quick engagement on key policy issues or risks when required.
