Private equity refers to a form of investment where funds are pooled from various sources, such as institutional investors, high-net-worth individuals, or pension funds, to acquire ownership stakes in private companies. Contrary to publicly traded companies, these investments are not listed on stock exchanges. Private equity firms deploy these funds to purchase a significant portion or the entirety of a company, aiming to enhance its value over time through active management strategies. They work closely with the management of the acquired company, implementing operational improvements, strategic changes, and growth initiatives to maximize its performance and ultimately generate returns for investors. Private equity spans various stages of businesses, from startups to established companies, and often involves restructuring expansion, or turnaround efforts to unlock the full potential of the company before exiting the investment through avenues such as IPOs or sales.

Prime determinants of growth

The private equity market is expected to witness notable growth owing to the potential for higher returns, access to specialized expertise and networks, and flexibility in investment strategies. Moreover, the opportunity for ESG integration is expected to provide a lucrative opportunity for the growth of the market during the forecast period. On the contrary, regulatory and compliance challenges and limited liquidity and exit options limit the growth of the private equity market.

The buyout segment to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period

Based on fund type, the buyout segment held the highest market share in 2022, accounting for nearly one-third of the global private equity market revenue and is estimated to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period. This is due to its versatility and applicability across diverse industries. Buyout funds often acquire controlling stakes in established companies, enabling private equity firms to implement strategic changes, drive operational efficiencies, and ultimately generate substantial returns upon exit.  However, the infrastructure segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 13.3% from 2023 to 2032. This is due to the global shifts toward sustainable development, increased demand for modern infrastructure, and the focus on renewable energy solutions. Infrastructure investments address critical needs for energy transition, transportation upgrades, and technological advancements, attracting private equity due to long-term revenue potential and the essential nature of these projects.

The technology segment to maintain its leadership status throughout the forecast period

On the basis of sector, the technology segment held the highest market share in 2022, accounting for more than one-fourth of the global private equity market revenue. This is due to its inherent dynamism and potential for disruptive innovation.  The attraction of private equity to technology lies in the rapid evolution of the sector, offering opportunities for high-growth investments in areas such as software, AI, and digital platforms. However, the industrial segment is projected to manifest the highest CAGR of 15.1% from 2022 to 2032. This is primarily due to the renewed focus on manufacturing advancements, automation, and Industry 4.0 initiatives. The interest in private equity in the industrial sector has surged due to opportunities to modernize manufacturing processes, embrace technological advancements, and pursue efficiency gains.

North America to maintain its dominance by 2032

On the basis of region, North America held the highest market share for more than one-third of the global private equity market in terms of revenue in 2022. This is due to the fact that the region has a well-established ecosystem for private equity, boasting a mature financial infrastructure, access to a vast pool of capital from institutional investors, and a robust regulatory environment conducive to investment activities. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 12.9% from 2023 to 2032. This is due to the fact that this region boasts rapid economic development, a burgeoning middle class, and an increase in entrepreneurial activity. In addition, there is a growth in openness to private equity investments, favorable demographics, and a rise in number of high-growth potential companies.

Nan Fung Group Launches First SEWIT Report


Nan Fung Group has recently published its inaugural sustainability report titled “SEWIT Report 2022-23: Pioneering for an Intergenerational Future”. The report exemplifies Nan Fung’s unwavering dedication to sustainable development and showcases the tangible progress made in creating long-term value for stakeholders across economic, environmental and social dimensions. Throughout its 69-year history, Nan Fung has consistently striven to build a sustainable and resilient community. With humble beginnings as a textile manufacturer, the company has evolved over the years and emerged as a leading conglomerate with diverse and robust business streams. The launch of Nan Fung’s first SEWIT report marks a major milestone on its sustainable development journey.

Nan Fung established its sustainability framework, “SEWIT”, in 2022, establishing Social cohesion (S), Environment (E), Wellness (W), Innovation (I), and Technology (T) as its five strategic pillars. Through SEWIT, Nan Fung continues to create shared value and positive impacts on business partners and stakeholders.

“Care for others as well as you would care for yourself”, founder Dr. Chen Din Hwa’s motto, continues to be a guiding light for Nan Fung and its staff, and has laid the foundation for Nan Fung’s continuous innovation and efforts to drive social cohesion. Going the extra mile, Nan Fung began integrating SEWIT into its day-to-day operations and continues to manifest the SEWIT mindset through all its new projects, with the aim to create a sustainable future across generations. “We learn as we go, challenging the status quo by continuously rethinking and reinventing our pioneering role to drive meaningful impact for all,” said Ms. Vanessa Cheung, Group Managing Director, founder of The Mills and SEWIT Committee Chairperson. Nan Fung will strive to expand the influence of SEWIT, with the goal of unleashing infinite possibilities for an intergenerational future.

Promoting community participation and listening to the voices of stakeholders

Nan Fung values interaction with the community and believes that in-depth communication with stakeholders is crucial for delivering impactful community projects. In 2022, Nan Fung conducted a location-based micro materiality assessment with more than 1,000 stakeholders in the Kai Tak and San Po Kong districts for the new Kai Tak flagship project AIRSIDE through focus groups, interviews and surveys. By communicating with key stakeholders in the community, Nan Fung is able to better understand social needs and expectations, thereby improving decision-making as well as the quality and effectiveness of its community projects.

Cultivating positive impact through cross-sector collaboration

In order to create impactful social programmes, Nan Fung adopts the “Theory of Change” as an integral framework to articulate how programme designs achieve their intended outcomes. A variety of impact measurement tools, including Social Return on Investment (SROI) and IRIS+, are also deployed to quantify short-term and long-term impact. Under its impact-driven community initiative “In Time Of”, Nan Fung partners with diverse social stakeholders to develop targeted community programmes that foster social empowerment and improve resource utilisation, in hopes of creating a more resilient future for local neighbourhoods. To consistently and systematically generate impact, all “In Time Of” initiatives are curated under the “Theory of Change” framework, such as its concept store at The Mills, “The Store In Time” – ­a platform for local NGOs, artists and brands to showcase their work, shedding light on the unique craftsmanship of local creators and entrepreneurs; and the empowerment programme, “My Little Story“, which comprises a series of business training and workshops to upskill small local businesses, thereby nurturing local talents to ultimately cultivate more vibrant communities.

Inspiring innovative solutions through impactful investments and cultivating young talents

Nan Fung has always advocated for an entrepreneurial culture and a perpetual pursuit of innovation: through investments in sustainable solutions and life sciences, Nan Fung actively drives business innovation to enhance the Group’s overall competitiveness. The Mills Fabrica’s portfolio includes seven funds and more than 20 techstyle and agrifood tech startups since 2018, while an estimated US$1 billion[1] has been invested in more than 60 companies and 30 funds by Nan Fung Life Sciences. The Life Sciences Research Sponsorship Program also sponsored more than 20 academic research projects, with more than US$12 million dedicated to comprehensively promoting the development of life sciences and technology. Among its investments, Arctic Vision, a mainland China-based biotech company that focuses on the development of innovative products that tackle eye diseases, has brought game-changing therapies as well as tech-enabled consumer eyecare products to the market.

With hopes to cultivate next-generation talents and build a brighter tomorrow, Nan Fung hosts international student competitions regularly, such as “Techstyle For Social Good”, to provide platforms for young innovators to generate positive impact through the techstyle and agrifood industries. Since 2018, Nan Fung’s incubation competitions have attracted more than 500 submissions, with over 22 winners awarded over HK$1.8 million through funding, mentorship and access to flexible coworking spaces.

Propelling sustainability through environmental and wellbeing initiatives as a tech-enabled pioneer

Nan Fung recognises the importance of addressing and mitigating climate-related risks for the long-term success of its business, striving to create a positive environmental impact throughout its business lines. In 2022, Hong Kong’s property portfolio has been committed to the science-based targets initiative and has set ambitious carbon emission reduction targets, with the goal of reaching net zero by 2050. Nan Fung also published its first climate-related financial disclosures, as per recommendations set out by the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures, and conducted the first group-wide net zero training, to equip all departments with the knowledge necessary to work towards Nan Fung’s net zero goals.

Through incorporating state-of-the-art technology in its projects, Nan Fung is committed to building future-proof and sustainable spaces equipped with smart and eco-friendly solutions, including the construction of its new flagship project AIRSIDE, which is home to one of the largest monocrystalline PV Farm and walkable PV and the first Automatic Refuse Collection System in Hong Kong. A Global Property Research & Analytics team was also established at the beginning of the year to leverage the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to refine and enhance real estate investment decisions.

Nan Fung also cares for the wellbeing of its stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, and people in the neighbourhood. Many of Nan Fung’s development projects were built with green infrastructure and managed with wellbeing as a priority, which has earned its portfolio various sustainability certifications. LP10, a development situated in LOHAS Park, boasts a family farm and adopts integrated pest management with non-toxic pest control measures. It is recognised as a WELL Certified™ Gold project in the category of WELL v1 MultiFamily Residential Pilot Building and has achieved Final Gold rating under BEAM Plus New Buildings by the Hong Kong Green Building Council. AIRSIDE, with its Grade A office portion achieving “WELL Core Platinum” certification, has indoor air quality sensors in place to ensure excellent air quality, as well as real-time data on display in both tenant and public areas for maximum transparency.

As we forge ahead, Nan Fung remains firmly committed to propelling sustainability. The Group will continue to publish reports to keep stakeholders informed of ongoing progress and achievements. This commitment remains steadfast as Nan Fung expands the SEWIT framework, ensuring that its journey towards a more sustainable future is shared with all.


MS-driven Transparity AI Services promise Intelligence over Artifice


UK-based pureplay Microsoft partner Transparity Solutions Limited has announced the official launch of an extended range of enterprise-grade professional AI services.

Placing the emphasis on “delivering real-world business value rather than just feeding into today’s perpetual AI hype-cycle” the company’s AI launch portfolio includes a new iteration of its unique ‘AI Readiness Assessment’ and a variety of Proof-of-concept solutions and bespoke consultancy services – versions of which have been already delivering AI-powered outcomes for organisations across the UK for some time.

Available immediately, the new range has been designed to appeal to what Transparity describes as the “virtually limitless array of potential users looking to automate and accelerate key business processes such as reporting and analytics, and/or other vital but currently largely manual tasks”.

Aimed at “technical and non-technical professionals alike” the offering also features a number of components that take advantage of advanced cognitive and generative AI disciplines, explains the company – the “tech that thinks and reasons for you”, that so many organisations are now beginning to explore.

With April 2023 having seen Transparity’s acquisition of Microsoft-focused Data, AI, and BI solutions consultancy DataShapa, the company’s launch of this expanded AI offering represents merely the latest in a continuing series of natural evolutionary steps into the AI realm, explains CEO, Paul Bolt.

“The AI era is now upon us and Transparity aspires to be nothing less than the AI partner of choice for enterprise customers across the UK. As a key milestone in the ongoing development of our associated capabilities and leveraging, as it does, a range of exciting new Microsoft technologies, this unveiling demonstrates our determination and drive to become exactly that.”

With the company consistently enjoying exceptional year-on-year growth – driven by an consistent ability to deliver tangibly transformative customer outcomes – and continuing to make waves in the Microsoft ecosystem as a result, Transparity expects its latest move to further cement its place as the partner of choice for AI in the UK.

While AI and Machine Learning are hardly new territory for Transparity – it has a proven record and a solid base of historic long-standing customer relationships in the data and data science disciplines – the company believes its dedicated new portfolio will accelerate its AI push and “allow even more customers to leverage the power of data science beyond the one-size-fits-all solutions so common in the field.”

So comments Alister Jones, DataShapa founder and now Managing Director Data & AI at Transparity.

“Amidst the buzz surrounding LLMs (Large Language Models) like GPT-4, generative AI tools like Chat-GPT, and the Azure OpenAI Service, identifying opportunities for genuine business value can be difficult. We are proud of our track record for creating transformative improvements to business operations. These offerings sharpen our ability to help customers step beyond the AI hype and buzz and achieve tangible outcomes and ROI.”

The strategy has rapidly born fruit for Transparity. Not least in high-performance maritime design and technical consultancy firm, BMT, having recently selected the Reading-headquartered MS house as its “AI partner of choice”.

Using Transparity to explore AI use cases that will improve team efficiency and employee experience, BMT is now “actively engaged in exploring bespoke AI solutions built in the Microsoft Cloud alongside Microsoft’s co-pilot offerings”, says Simon Willmore, Head of Digital Strategy at BMT.

“We’ve worked with Transparity to ready our underlying data strategy – because great AI needs great data – and we are excited to explore the use cases that this generative and applied AI build to meet the very specific needs of our business.’

The growing relationship with BMT represents the perfect rubber stamp for Transparity’s market strategy, notes Jones.

“Our latest solutions, which formalise years of experience and expertise, are designed specifically to address organisations’ biggest real-world challenges – improving efficiency, maximising revenues, and empowering employees creativity and innovation for example – in measurable, concrete, and above all responsible ways. All powered by Microsoft technologies.”

This is typified, he says, by Transparity’s AI Readiness Assessment, which “quickly allows organisations to go beyond the hype and understand and pinpoint where and how AI can help them overcome their key challenges.”

“That being the case, I couldn’t be more excited about bringing all these new services – and the expert teams that stand behind them – to market.”

Bolt agrees.

“I really am thrilled to be overseeing the launch of Transparity’s AI portfolio today.
It is the latest exciting phase in our incredible growth journey of the past few years and, fortifying our place at the forefront of the latest emerging technologies and as the UK’s leading Microsoft powerhouse, we are confident that it is just one of many more steps that we’ll be taking in our move towards a hugely exciting future.

“In what continues to be a challenging economic climate, Transparity is able to keep on winning thanks to, and guided by, the strength of our relationship with Microsoft, the amazing people who make us who we are, and our long-standing mission to be the UK’s most respected partner. To that list of strengths we can now add a more innovative and robust service offering than ever before.”

Pan Finance Announces the Q4 Award Winners of 2023


In 2023, the global financial sector has navigated the aftermath of the COVID-19 epidemic with resilience and adaptability. Financial service providers worldwide have embraced digitalization, particularly through the increased use of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, replacing outdated alternatives. The industry’s strategic focus on digital omnichannel approaches has expanded to include deep technology areas such as meta-space and Web 3.0, ushering in transformative changes in customer experiences.  Cloud technologies have taken centre stage, driving contactless and highly efficient customer service and prompting a reallocation of funds toward digital initiatives. Collaboration with fintechs has become integral to the industry’s progress, emphasising data acquisition, storage, and advanced analytics.

Looking forward, regulatory challenges, especially related to account aggregators, digital lending guidelines, and heightened data availability expectations, loom large for financial institutions. Environmental, social, and governance objectives have gained prominence, with a focus on decarbonization and sustainability. Digitalization, decentralisation, and decarbonization emerged as the primary areas of innovation in 2023, with a strong emphasis on aligning long-term investment strategies and business priorities with ESG principles.  It is therefore imperative that business school finance programs include sustainable investing concepts and tools as part of mainstream financial education; a topic explored in the front cover article of the Pan Finance Q4 2023 edition.

“Modern asset securitization or ‘repackaging’ strategies have become a bridge to facilitate investor access, thereby promoting capital acquisition. Thanks to Pan-Finance for the distinction awarded as the Best Asset Securitization Programme Latam 2023; this motivates us to continue democratising access to cost-effective investment vehicles for portfolio managers worldwide”, added Emilio Veiga Gil, EVP of FlexFunds.

Chun-shou Lin, director of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in Japan, and Kou-I Szu, Chairman of the Taiwan Intelligent Automation and Robotics Association (TAIROA), delivered welcome speeches at iREX 2023. In his address, Mr. Lin underscored Taiwan’s significant contribution to intelligent manufacturing, highlighting the region’s extensive production- and service-related expertise. He pointed out that Taiwanese firms are adept at rapidly integrating information and adopting flexible production methods to provide customized intelligent solutions tailored to customer needs.

The Smart Machinery Overseas Promotion Program is an initiative launched by the International Trade Administration to aid Taiwan’s smart machinery manufacturers in strengthening their competence in international marketing. Jointly executed by the Precision Machinery Research and Development Center (PMC) and TAIROA, the initiative features an integrated multi-faceted marketing strategy aimed at enhancing Taiwan’s position in the global intelligent manufacturing sector and showcasing the region’s intelligent manufacturing solutions and competitive edge to international buyers.

Passenger Cars segment is expected to have largest share in the global electric vehicle tires market

The passenger cars segment is expected to hold the largest share of the electric vehicle tires industry during the forecast period. The demand for electric vehicle tires among several automotive manufacturers is rising to help increase EV sales due to the focus on reducing CO2 emissions from passenger cars. Tire manufacturers are working closely with the automakers to develop and provide EV tires for passenger cars. In June 2022, Hyundai Motor Group and Michelin announced a collaboration up to 2025 to develop the next-generation tires for premium electric vehicles. In January 2023, Pirelli & C. SpA announced that it would be supplying P Zero Elect tires for the BMW i4 M50. In addition, vehicle utilization is on the rise in developing economies due to increasing cab-sharing facilities, which will create growth opportunities for the market.

Off-road application segment is estimated to exhibit the fastest growth in global electric vehicle tires market

The Off-road segment is expected to have the fastest growth in the electric vehicle tires market by 2030. The off-road application of electric vehicle tires includes heavy-duty trucks and construction. There has been a rapid growth of the construction industry in developing economies, which has catalysed the demand for off-road tires. North America is the largest market for pick-up trucks for transporting goods and passengers. Many vehicle manufacturers such as Ford, Chevrolet, Rivian, Tesla, and more are releasing electric pick-up trucks. Ford has offered F-150 lightning since 2022. The Rivian R1T pick-up truck was released in September 2021. Chevrolet will offer the next-generation Silverado EV pick-up truck from 2024, while Tesla will deliver the Cybertruck in November 2023 for off-road applications. The growing availability of electric trucks will increase the demand for off-road electric vehicle tires. Many fleet owners that provide vehicles at construction and mining sites are being educated regarding the long-term economic benefits of using electric vehicles and, in turn, electric vehicle tires. Hindustan Zinc Limited, an Indian mining and resource production company, has added Normet Agitator SmartDrive EV into its underground mining operations. Off-road vehicles must operate in harsh environments. There is an increasing need for high-quality electric vehicle tires that have excellent durability and better grip for all terrains. Many key tire manufacturers are investing heavily in this segment and launching off-road capable tires. In October 2023, Toyo Tires (Japan) introduced its new line of all-terrain off-road replacement tire Open Country A/T III EV for electric off-road light trucks in North America. It features a sidewall AeroWing technology to improve rolling resistance. It was first fitted in February 2024 for Ford F-150 Lightning and subsequently will be made available for other electric trucks such as Rivian R1S and GMC Hummer EV.

Germany to lead the electric vehicle tires market in Europe

Germany is expected to be the largest market in Europe for electric vehicle tires during the forecast period. Germany is considered the hub of the automotive industry and the largest producer of passenger cars. Increasing sales of electric passenger cars is the key driving factor for electric vehicle tires in Germany. The advancement of the automotive industry in Europe is another key factor impacting the growth of the electric vehicle tires market in the region. This contributes to the high growth of the electric vehicle tires market in the region. Increasing government initiatives regarding controlling carbon emissions are boosting the sales of electric vehicles in Europe, which will boost the electric vehicle tires market in the region. In March 2023, Norway became the first country in the world to announce a ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2025. Other European countries, such as the UK, Denmark, and Sweden, have also announced plans to ban the sale of new ICE vehicles by 2030 or earlier.

atNorth Announces Heat Reuse Enabled Mega Site in Kouvola


atNorth, the leading Nordic colocation, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence service provider, has announced further expansion into Finland with a new mega site planned on a 21 hectare plot, in Kouvola, 139KM north east of Helsinki and 52KM from the city of Hamina. The site, called FIN04, aligns to atNorth’s growth strategy and will be atNorth’s tenth data center in the Nordics and its fourth campus in Finland.

FIN04 will have an immediate power supply of 60 megawatts (MW) with the first phase, ready for operation in the second half of 2025 and a path to power to several hundred megawatts when fully built. The site will cater for both colocation customers and build-to-suit projects.

“This agreement is yet another hallmark moment for atNorth. Kouvola is a critical location for our next site as we continue to expand and meet the growing demand for high performance services,” commented atNorth’s CEO, Eyjolfur Magnus Kristinsson. “We are in ongoing discussions with several AI companies, hyperscalers as well as international organizations requiring High Performance Computing, who see the clear benefit of moving to the Nordics to decarbonize their IT workloads. True to our vision, we are leading the way in future-proofed data center infrastructure across the Nordics.”

The Kouvola region is known for its sustainability practices. The city promotes a circular economy throughout its infrastructure design and architecture, in line with the needs of local communities, businesses, and residents.

“Kouvola is a sought-after, sustainable destination. We welcome business investment from responsible companies like atNorth who see the benefit in helping to advance digitalization in an environmentally responsible way,” stated Marita Toikka, Mayor of Kouvola. “We are excited to collaborate with atNorth to bring innovation, digital competitiveness and sustainability to the forefront.”

Working closely with the city of Kouvola and energy partner, KSS Energia, the new FIN04 site will be enabled with heat reuse capabilities, which will enable the recovery of excess heat from the data center to be recycled for possible reuse within the local community.

“We are excited to work with atNorth to implement a heat reuse practice that can serve as an inspiration for other businesses striving to meet sustainability targets and contribute to a better world,” stated Marko Riipinen, CEO, KSS Energia 

The announcement of the FIN04 site comes off the back of atNorth’s recent acquisition of two data center sites and the construction of a third facility in Finland, as well as a planned development of a 30MW data center in Denmark, due to go live at the end of 2024. This year, the company also completed the acquisition of Gompute, adding a full stack HPC-as-a-Service offering and an additional facility in Sweden to it’s portfolio.
