Bart Peerless, Senior Partner, commented: “Having advised clients in the private capital sector for several decades, I know first-hand the relationship that is formed between client and advisor. Through this podcast series, we have been able to have in-depth conversations with our clients about their careers, how they’ve worked with advisors and have heard their advice for future entrepreneurs.”
