Donald Trump's election as the US President last year shed some light on the private equity sector of the United States. Many believe that Trump will impact private equity positively because of his stand and remarks during the election campaigns. Specifically, he stressed on tax code reforms, reduced regulations, and review of certain trade deals.
However, others are still uncertain on how his proposed policies will impact private equity because of his bold executive orders. For example, the recent withdrawal of US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership may have lasting effects on portfolio companies of private equity groups that import or export products. Trump's administration is only in its dawn, and while it is still too early to foresee the entirety of his leadership, his takes on private equity clearly makes people anticipate his administration’s further effects on the said sector.
