The World Economic Forum, Davos 16-20 January 2023
The World Economic Forum is holding its usual event in Davos, Switzerland, this week, from 16 to 20 January 2023, to be attended by over 2,500 delegates. Under the banner of “Cooperation in a Fragmented World,” political and business leaders will focus on economic instability, uncertainty, the energy crisis, growing inflation rates and climate change. As always, we expect the discussions held at Davos to be both reflective and influential.
When Private Equity meets HR
Private Equity (PE) funds are amongst the most important investors in takeovers and carve-outs, particularly given the relative weakness of the European banking sector and the challenges of financing of large- and midsize companies in a world of rising interest rates.
The past few years have been a period of near-unprecedented post-war instability and insecurity worldwide. From the Covid-19 pandemic to war in Ukraine, climate-related natural disasters and political instability, it is little wonder that Collins’ dictionary recently selected ‘perma-crisis’ as its word of 2022. The consequences have been and remain tangible in people’s day-to-day lives: energy and food prices have soared, supply chain issues are frequent and there is a widespread climate of uncertainty.
