This week, the Unquote Podcast focuses on Germany, where private equity activity has remained resilient despite Covid-19.
German private equity has continued in an industrious fashion despite the coronavirus crisis, partly due to the country only partially shutting down at the virus’s peak, and thanks to a swiftly organised and generous furlough scheme. Unquote's Katharine Hidalgo hosts DACH reporter Harriet Matthews, who spoke with Joachim Braun of Silverfleet Capital and Klaus-Martin Haussmann from Duff & Phelps about the country’s resilience.
