The UK economy is facing a significant debt burden. The Government will want to see companies remain solvent to keep unemployment down, and to see the country trade out of this crisis. Companies who have taken on debt need reassurance for their future.
This discussion will focus on the role that private equity can play in helping companies navigate their way through the recovery. To what extent is private equity the answer to the problem? What will shape the industry’s thinking? How will Environmental and Social Governance influence investment decisions?
Hosted by international affairs advisor Matthew Kirk, our series of weekly virtual panel discussions address business challenges, commercial risks and legal implications around fast-moving issues of the day.
