Mid-Cap PE-owned portfolio companies are facing new – sometimes existential – threats, risks and challenges that they haven’t navigated in over a decade: from inflation and high interest rates to supply chain volatility and geo-political unrest.

For operating partners charged with both maintaining a stable platform and delivering on the investment thesis, the playbook has been torn up and the rules are being rewritten contemporaneously.

Join us as we discuss the circumstances contributing to the current economic environmental challenges, unpack the risks to mid-cap PE-owned portfolio companies and share best practices on how best to monitor and mitigate key risks on a real-time basis as well as identify red flags.
