Whilst each is subject to its own industry dynamics, outsourcing is the key driver within the sector worldwide, generating strong organic growth and counter-cyclical trends.

After 10 years of rapid growth, the Financial Services sector has been going through a period of reconfiguration since the credit crunch. This is creating attractive opportunities for Cinven as valuation dislocations emerge and institutions divest non-core assets or seek partners to raise capital.
