We are pleased to share with you the results of our 2020 Private Equity CFO Survey. This is our fourth annual survey. As in our previous years, we asked about PE CFOs for their perspective on compensation, governance, the relationship with their investors, and the differences in the role under PE ownership. We also asked respondents to gaze into their collective crystal ball and share their views on micro and macroeconomic issues.
We are pleased to share with you the results of our 2020 Private Equity CFO Survey.
Between February 8 to March 6, 2020, Vardis contacted the CFOs of more than 1,250 North American Private Equity Portfolio companies. The original survey concluded prior to any significant shelter-in-place restrictions outside of Wuhan. Though this was identified as a market risk, any view on general economic expectations were likely to be significantly different had the survey been conducted even two to three weeks later. With this in mind, we re-approached this same cohort between April 13-20, 2020 and included these responses as an Addendum.
