Abstract

Artificial intelligence is becoming one of the key technologies in the digital transformation of organisations across industries. While organisations around the world are implementing artificial intelligence as a strategic tool to drive growth and improve processes, not all businesses are embracing this technology at the same pace. Private equity firms have been traditionally slow to adopt innovative technologies and still rely on numerous manual processes to analyse deals and perform back-office task.

Numerous studies have been conducted in the area of private equity, however, most of the research has involved quantitative methodology and has focused on measuring the overall performance of firms and their impact to the wider economy. Little qualitative research has been carried out to analyse perspectives of senior management regarding internal process challenges and innovative technology adoption patterns.

The overall aim of this research is to explore the views of senior management within private equity and venture capital firms regarding the implementation of artificial intelligence technologies and its potential impact on their internal investment decision making processes. To achieve this objective, this research uses qualitative research and thematic analysis methodologies. This research aims to provide an updated perspective from leaders within private equity and venture capital firms that could hopefully be useful to individuals promoting change and AI-technology adoption within the private equity sector.
