With asset valuations and dry powder at their highest levels in years, general partners are aggressively competing for attractive deals. Technology is a critical factor helping firms simplify day-to-day operations and provide a holistic view of a fund’s lifecycle while stripping out complexities. Yet many are relying on outdated legacy systems and processes.

Over the last couple of years, there has been a growing emphasis on data. To dig deeper into the importance of embracing a technology-first approach, Jen Tribush our global head of alternatives product, connected with Tim Buchner, co-founder of Mercatus, and Jonathan Balkin, founder of the Balkin Group, to discuss the future of private markets.
