VIDEO: CFOs on the biggest risks facing private equity

CFOs from Roark Capital Group, Delos Capital, Cloverlay, XPV Water Partners and Sandton Capital Partners share the biggest risk their firms face in this three-minute video.

What are the biggest risks facing private equity firms today? That’s what we asked CFOs of private equity firms at our annual CFOs and COOs Forum in New York in late January.

The answers range from the macro to the micro. Cybersecurity is “an arms race,” says Roark Capital Group’s CFO Tracy Haas, while Omar Hassan, principal and CFO of Cloverlay, sees rising interest rates pushing LPs to demand more of an illiquidity premium from their private capital investments.
