As the financial policy committee of the Bank of England (BoE) continues to monitor risks to financial stability, officials have raised concerns about the potential impact on UK businesses if there is a reversal of the long-standing private equity boom. The BoE has expressed worries about issues such as leverage, transparency, and valuations in private markets.

The risk environment is challenging, according to the BoE’s financial policy committee, and there is an increased likelihood of a sharp correction in some markets as prices continue to rise despite uncertainty in the economic outlook. Officials are particularly concerned about funding for riskier corporates, including private equity firms facing higher borrowing costs and UK companies that rely on them for funding.

To address potential vulnerabilities in the financial system, the BoE has promised to conduct further research on the connections between private equity firms and the companies they fund. Officials believe that this will help them better understand how changes in investor risk sentiment could impact funding for these businesses. By doing so, they hope to minimize any potential negative effects on UK businesses and maintain financial stability in the country.
