In our latest episode of Spotlight we discuss the results of two PEI surveys: Investor outlook on 2020 in light of covid-19 and a corresponding GP survey (to be released later this week). These reports – both conducted in May – show how LP and GP sentiment towards private equity has evolved since the beginning of the health crisis in mid-March. We discuss how working from home does not appear to be restricting investors from making fund commitments; why LPs are being more flexible about their managers’ investment mandates; why the denominator effect hasn’t spurred large secondaries sales, and more.
