  • Pre-deal: Based on our in-depth market knowledge, we support private equity houses with market research to identify the most attractive market segments in the connected mobility space – including urban mobility, pay-as-you-drive services, connected vehicle services and usage-based insurance. We understand the key market trends and future drivers and can prepare long-lists and short-lists of potential target companies
