Welcome to this special edition of The Street View. Given global circumstances with many of our markets in varying degrees of lockdown, this edition provides both the “street view” and “a view of the street”.
Despite these challenging times, there has been no lockdown in our activity set at Actis and, just as importantly, our portfolio companies are working hard to deal with challenges in the current environment. In this edition we highlight results from Actis surveys of our portfolio companies undertaken by Ed Williams and David Kunzmann, from the Private Equity Value Creation Group. The good news is that preparedness is high and that Actis is supporting portfolio companies and management teams to battle with unprecedented challenges. The not-so good news is that the majority of those surveyed see this as a multi quarter crisis. Only time will tell.
