Is Private Equity a People Business?

Susanne von Gueltlingen, Partner in the Alternatives Asset Management unit within Siemens Fonds, joins the podcast to discuss her career journey and experience from corporate finance to life as an LP in Europe.

Susanne offers her take on culture in private equity. Is the commonly accepted notion that private equity careers require a commitment that comes at the expense of family obligations here to stay? Or is inclusivity driving change in work-life balance? Susanne also discusses Siemens’ investments in light of the COVID pandemic and their growing portfolio in the US. Finally, Susanne offers insights on the European Commission’s AIFMD review and ways that GPs can access the European market.
