Adam Turtle, co-founder and partner at placement agent Rede Partners, joins the podcast to discuss the firm's journey over its first decade and the main trends in the European fundraising landscape.
Amid an increasingly bifurcated fundraising market in which the biggest GPs gather up the vast majority of capital, how can debut funds and smaller private equity managers lure commitments from LPs? How has the role of placement agents evolved, and how can they continue to mature with the market? And how are secondaries helping to redefine PE's attractiveness? Our guest unpacks all this, and more, with Unquote editor Greg Gille.
