What excites you the most about being a growth equity investor?
Growth equity investing is a sweet spot in private equity offering an excellent combination of downside protection and upside potential, particularly for sector specialists like ourselves. I most enjoy the opportunity to work with highly skilled, dynamic management teams helping them build a company that has meaningful scale and long-term sustainability.
