Michael Elio, partner at StepStone Group; Howard Gurvitch, principal at Gurvitch Family Office; and Eric Newman, CPA, CGMA, treasurer and pension plan trustee of the City of Stamford met for a panel on middle-market trends in LP investments, moderated by contributing editor, Danielle Fugazy. The conversation took place at The Best in M&A Speak virtual event, where we announced the winners of the 2021 Top 10 Middle-Market Deals of the Year. Panelists discussed their investing experiences this year and shared insights into the future of LP investing in PE.

“LPs are getting creative with pacing their pipeline to really back up their good, strong relationships and do it in a much more cost-effective manner,” says Elio. “LPs are really looking at all of the options available to them to get the best deal but also not overspending in the process.”
