Unquote Private Equity Podcast: Taking the plunge - GPs dive into alternative pools of capital
Unquote’s Harriet Matthews and Rachel Lewis discuss how and why private equity firms are looking to harness additional and alternative pools of capital for their fundraises in the current market, with a guest interview with Thomas Eskebæk, CEO of private markets platform Titanbay.
Accessing allocations from LPs is a notoriously tough process in the current market, leading to a wealth of complications for fundraising and dealmaking.
There are also a number of factors driving individual investors and smaller institutions towards private markets and their returns, but simplifying and streamlining the process of onboarding these investors will be paramount to securing it.
Titanbay’s Eskebæk discusses Titanbay’s offering and the longer-term trends behind the adoption of these investment solutions. Following a discussion of some key takeaways from the interview, the Unquote team looks ahead to other sources of capital that sponsors are looking to harness in the current environment.
