The future of co-investment
In a roundtable with Private Equity International (PEI), Jason Strife, Senior Managing Director and Head of Junior Capital and Private Equity Solutions at Churchill, discusses how co-investing can benefit investors and how this is different to continuation vehicles, a popular contender in the industry.
Other key themes discussed include:
- Why co-investments are attractive as they’ve ever been—and what is driving appetite for continuation vehicles
- The resiliency of certain sectors throughout economic cycles and which ones are commanding consistently high valuations
- What co-investors need to consider before making the decision to invest, and what the SEC’s new fees and transparency regulations mean for co-investment
- Technology as a useful tool in the due diligence process and risk mitigation
Most businesses involved in continuation vehicles have graduated out of the traditional midmarket space. They have grown up and become winners.
