This year’s honorees on Private Equity Analyst’s Women to Watch list come from a range of firm sizes, industries and investment strategies.
Women have played an active role in the limited-partner and fundraising communities even before they made inroads in the world of deal-making. As part of our annual Women to Watch list, we highlight top female talent in roles across fundraising, business development and portfolio management in the general-partner capital-formation or limited-partner worlds. This year’s class hails from global placement agents, private-equity and venture-capital firms, as well as some of the industry’s most active limited partners.
Mentors in the private-equity world can often have a tremendous impact on a professional’s career trajectory. We asked some of the private-equity industry’s senior women to share their thoughts on the most influential mentors in their careers.
