General partners are not shy about expressing their opinions. It’s hard enough to get two of them to agree on a deal, let alone get an entire partnership on the same page. So how do investment decisions ever get made? Coming to a consensus was a lot easier in years past. The firm’s founder would issue a decree and all others would echo their approval. But the days of top-down decision-making are over.
Grant Thornton’s digital thought leadership series — The Art & Science of Dealmaking — explores important topics of interest to private equity groups and their investors. The augural program, entitled “Culture of Collaborative Investing,” explores the innovative ways that leading general partners are building consensus and collaboration within the partnership. It reveals how they resolve disagreements and align interests among all team members to arrive at the best investment decisions.
We invite you listen in on the roundtable discussion with Doug Londal, managing director at New Mountain Capital; Richard Lawson, managing partners at Huntsman Gay Global Capital; and Dan Galante, national managing partner of Grant Thornton’s Transaction Advisory Services. The discussion is facilitated by David Snow, former editor-in-chief of PEI and the president of Privcap, a digital thought leadership platform dedicated to the private equity sector.
