Private Equity Relationships

One of the interesting dynamics, I see regularly at social events amongst the global private equity community (investment partners, portfolio company managers and non-executive directors), is a surprisingly small number of people truly at ease with their own success.  I am talking about people, who project fear (credibility), portray guilt (success) or don’t act as a peer (socially confident). Given this is a business that is founded on building superior peer-level trusting partnerships within and outside firms, you’d think individuals with those qualities will be in even greater demand in the future than simply those with impressive analytic skills.
