Inaugural Private Funds Leaders Study

Take our brief, inaugural survey about the direction of travel for the private funds industry

Welcome to the inaugural survey of private fund leaders for a forthcoming Private Funds CFO report due to be published later this year.

After the challenges of 2020, it is safe to assume that senior executives of private funds have plenty on their minds in 2021. From strategic decisions on fundraising timing to ESG issues and outsourcing, the leadership team of the modern private equity firm is grappling with some thorny issues.

That’s where our first-ever private fund leadership study comes in. We quiz senior leaders about the direction of travel for the private funds industry. The survey should only take 10 minutes of your time and your submission is entirely confidential. We will not identify which firms answered our questions.

You can take the survey by clicking this link.

We greatly appreciate your time as we count on broad participation to make results more meaningful. To that end, you will receive a complimentary copy of the results when the report is published.

The deadline for submission is February 26.

We thank you in advance for your kind participation.
