This week, the Unquote Podcast examines the fundraising market amid the challenges of Covid-19.
The pandemic may have slowed down fundraising processes, but numerous closes have still been announced, and Q1 activity figures paint a defiant picture of the market. To get a better understanding of how fundraisers are faring on the (virtual) road, Katharine Hidalgo spoke to Unquote editor Greg Gille about the underlying data, and three specialists in the field: Cebile Capital founder Sunaina Sinha, Campbell Lutyens partner Andrew Bentley, and managing director of Asante Capital, Ricardo Felix.
