Listen to Steffen Pauls on the Dry Powder podcast

Our CEO recently spoke on Bain’s industry-leading private equity podcast on Moonfare’s journey so far, and what the future holds.

The democratisation of private markets has been a leading theme in the industry, and Moonfare remains at the forefront of this mega trend. But what does the recent shift in economic sentiment mean for the market, and what does the future hold?

Our CEO, Dr Steffen Pauls, sat down to discuss these themes on the latest episode of Dry Powder, an industry-leading podcast by Bain.

Key highlights from Steffen’s conversation with Bain’s head of private equity, Hugh MacArthur, include:

  • Why the past year has been an ‘inflection point’ in terms of accelerating demand for private market assets.
  • The reasons behind Moonfare’s decision to go global at an early stage.
  • How blockchain and tokenisation could be the backbone of the industry’s future.

Steffen also featured in Bain’s Global Private Equity Report 2023, which was released earlier this year. In particular, he spoke to Bain about why private equity is targeting retail investors, and the need for liquidity mechanisms.
