Partners Justin Hutchinson and Alex Lewis were featured in Private Equity International's Keynote Interview, entitled "The Rise of Mid-market Specialist Funds."
In this interview Justin and Alex reflected on the impact of the last 12 months on PE strategies, namely the accelerating trend toward specialization and the emergence of alternative strategies. They explain how managers might differentiate themselves in this competitive market and consider the current industry- and geography-specific strategies gaining momentum in the sponsor landscape. They reflect on longer-term holds and how growing interest might shape the PE market as well as what the landscape could look like in the future as investors consider a wider range of differentiated strategies.
