David Wardrop, a partner at UK-based private equity house Rutland Partners, joins Unquote editor Greg Gille to discuss how the firm is approaching the post-Covid investment landscape.
It is no secret that the past 18 months have radically altered the outlook of a number of businesses – and in turn changed what they look for in a financial backer, and what these investors need to bring to the table.
Wardrop discusses how Rutland is positioning itself in a UK private equity landscape increasingly focused on high-growth businesses, how the firm's focus on more complex situations requires a different approach both pre- and post-deal, and how the disruption brought on by the pandemic is making its offering more relevant than ever.
