Last week we had the pleasure of attending a breakfast hosted at Citrin Cooperman’s Manhattan headquarters for a lively discussion on the fast-growing independent sponsor space. Attendees included independent sponsors, private equity firms, investment bankers, and service providers to the space.
Our major takeaway from the event was that plenty of capital seems to be available to invest in independent sponsor deals, but what was in short supply was robust deal flow. Really well-done meeting. A special shout out to Sylvie Gadant from Citrin for organizing the whole affair, and Heather Madland from Huron Capital for bringing her team in from Motown to lead the discussion. Well done.
