In this webinar, you will hear insights from some of the most active secondaries investors. The secondaries market has grown from $2B in annual transactions value in 2001 to $85B in 2019. The market suffered greatly from the Global Financial Crisis but since then the market has matured a lot, we will be discussing how the current crises have affected the market and what opportunities and risks the market currently presents.
