In early July, Secondaries Investor sat down (virtually, given the coronavirus-induced travel restrictions) with Kate Ashton, partner at law firm Debevoise & Plimpton; Martha Heitmann, partner at LGT Capital Partners; Johanna Lottmann, managing director at PJT Park Hill; and George Anson, chair of non-profit organisation Level 20, which promotes women in private equity.

In this podcast, we discuss how to encourage more women in the secondaries industry, recognising and dealing with unconscious biases, and why the sector is well-suited to females. Plus: advice for women considering a career in secondaries, and the biggest issues facing the market.
