Episode 26: Successful Relationship Building in Deal Making

Building relationships has always been an integral part of deal making. The pandemic has made relationship-building more challenging and yet, the outlook for deal activity in 2021 is strong. In this latest episode of BDO's Private Equity PErspectives Podcast, Todd Kinney spoke with Ken Grider, Managing Director and Head of Business Development at Raymond James, and Luis Zaldivar, Managing Partner at Avance Investment Management, about building meaningful connections in today's remote work environment and the role technology has played in streamlining the M&A transaction process.

During this episode's Coffee Break, Patrick Bisceglia, Managing Director with BDO Capital Advisors and Global Co-Head of Technology, Media and Telecom (TMT) investment banking for BDO International, discusses private equity firms’ increasingly thematic approach to investing and why investor appetite for all things “tech” and “tech-enabled” is likely here to stay.
