As the current public health crisis continues to deepen in many parts of the world – and as policy-makers, businesses and investors respond in real time – this week’s European Funds Comment brings together a selection of the extensive resources that are available to European businesses. We hope this will be helpful to private equity firms working with European portfolio companies to respond to the devastating economic impact of the current situation.
