Global Fashion & Luxury Private Equity and Investors Survey 2020
In 2019, Fashion & Luxury (F&L) continued to pique the interest of private equity funds and investors.
During 2019, we saw an economic slowdown, the rise of populism and geopolitical disruptions affecting the globe. Despite market challenges and record high valuations, the F&L industry remained a priority for private equity funds and investors.
COVID-19’s impact will make 2020 particularly challenging - not since the financial crisis of 2008 have we seen such uncertainty in the market. The pandemic has seen F&L companies impacted by country shutdowns, supply chain disruptions and production standstills.
The repercussions of this changing global dynamic are setting the stage for drastic changes in the F&L industry. The increasing presence of disruptive technologies and digital acceleration are already affecting key players and their business models.
Amidst this backdrop, global investors interested in the Fashion & Luxury industry are reviewing their expectations and strategies for the years ahead.
