(NYSE:FCN) today introduced the firm's Private Capital Advisory Services ("PCAS") offering, which brings together FTI Consulting's subject-matter and industry expertise to provide comprehensive services globally throughout the deal lifecycle, from origination to transaction and value creation through exit. "A key differentiator for FTI Consulting is our deep industry experience that gives insight into the complexities and challenges facing specific sectors," said Brian Kushner, Leader of the PCAS offering and a Senior Managing Director at FTI Consulting. "Each of FTI Consulting's business segments touch private capital in some way, and this coordinated offering allows us to provide clients a full range of services to address their needs at any stage of their lifecycle." Faced with an evolving regulatory environment and greater scrutiny around risk, operations and performance, investors and private equity funds need to adapt to changing conditions in global markets. FTI Consulting's PCAS specialists work with the world's leading private equity firms, hedge funds, family offices and investment banks to deliver actionable investment theses that identify deal flow for private capital sources and their portfolio companies. The offering complements FTI Consulting's existing private equity capabilities in United States and Europe, the Middle East and Africa ("EMEA"), providing clients with access to a global team of senior industry and functional experts with a proven track record and experience in transactions throughout the world. "Private equity firms often must look at crossing borders to achieve success in the current marketplace, and we have handled some of the largest and most complex transactions in recent years," said Rustom Kharegat, Leader of the EMEA Transaction Services practice and a Senior Managing Director at FTI Consulting. "Building on our work in EMEA and coordinating globally will allow us to present clients with actionable solutions to help them deliver enhanced value on a global scale."
