Private equity firms are facing increased scrutiny from the Bank of England, as officials investigate the potential impact on funding for UK businesses if there is a reversal of the boom in private equity investments. Officials from the BoE’s financial policy committee have expressed concerns about leverage, transparency, and valuations in private markets, stating that the risk environment remains challenging and there is an increased likelihood of a sharp correction in some markets.

The vulnerability of finance for riskier corporates was highlighted by officials in the event of a significant deterioration in investor risk sentiment. They also emphasized the importance of understanding the interconnections between private equity firms, which are facing higher borrowing costs, and the UK companies that rely on them for funding. The BoE has pledged to conduct further work on this issue to better understand and address potential risks to financial stability.
