Today, NautaDutilh Brussels published its first report on expectations in the Belgian private equity and venture capital sector. In addition to charting market expectations, the report highlights a number of specificities of the Belgian market, such as the importance of the life sciences and energy sectors, distressed M&A, and family businesses.
A total of 57 respondents, including private equity and venture capital professionals, bankers, corporate finance advisors, and university professors, completed our online survey and provided valuable feedback.
The most striking conclusion of the report is that Belgium has again become an attractive market for private equity investors. Indeed, 2013 is off to a good start, and there is cause for moderate optimism.
