In the third of Unquote's Lockdown series, Francois Aguerre, partner and co-head of origination at Coller Capital, discusses how long-term investment prospects are still strong despite the current economic disruption.

Aguerre also notes that Coller's pipeline of opportunities has not declined commensurately with transaction volumes, meaning activity could pick up fairly quickly once there is more certainty on both the buy- and sell-side.
