Panel Discussion: With some of the highest deal values on record and plenty of dry powder chasing deals, competition has ramped up as mid-market firms seek out the most attractive targets. This means managers must get in front of deals quickly and be selective about the targets they want to pursue. How are GPs coping with the increased pressure caused by this dealmaking frenzy? The outlook is also brighter for LPs targeting the mid-market, with investor appetite on the up. How are LPs adding pressure and scrutiny on factors such as ESG, and will there be continued appetite for Emerging Managers throughout 2022?
