You can listen to this episode of Dry Powder and catch future episodes by subscribing on Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsSpotify, or wherever you may listen.

Today on the show, we’ll take a closer look at the resilience of the industry’s leading investors. I ask Jim about the remarkable staying power of the top-performing general partners and the volatility beneath the surface of the industry’s history. We also consider whether traditional measures of performance, such as quartiling, are still working—or if the industry should develop new benchmarks for success.

Finally, we explore the evolving GP toolkit and which tools will be indispensable in the years to come.
