This is an exciting and dynamic sector, influencing every area of our economies.
Outsourcing, a major secular driver, is a defining characteristic of the sector across Europe. In addition, regulatory drivers and contracted revenues provide a defensive aspect to some sub-sectors.
The sector’s inherent diversity means there are a variety of growth drivers and end markets, while low initial capital requirements in certain sub-sectors promote entrepreneurial activity.
Although challenging economic conditions will inevitably cause uncertainty, the underlying business trend towards greater efficiency is ever more pressing which supports the development and expansion of out-sourcing business models.
Altium provides comprehensive coverage of this diverse sector. M&A, corporate finance and equity capital markets capabilities are highly relevant in this sector which remains fragmented and largely local.
These characteristics have resulted in a high volume of corporate activity in which Altium has been heavily involved, having completed more than 40 transactions in the sector since 2005.
