Jeffrey Diehl
Managing Partner & Head of Investments

Jeff Diehl, Managing Partner & Head of Investments, joined a webinar produced for Adams Street Partners by EI Studios, the custom division of Economist Impact, to discuss how innovation drives investment opportunities in private markets. Each wave of the pandemic, spanning over two years, has changed the global economy in unexpected ways. Unprecedented levels of fiscal and monetary support in the first year of the pandemic helped stabilize markets and have encouraged innovation in a number of industries. We believe that private market investors are well positioned to benefit from the innovation supercycle that’s being driven by digitization of the global economy, a decades-long transformation accelerated by the pandemic. The webinar explored how technology and healthcare innovation, flexible workplaces, and impact investing are powering a consequential age for private market investors.
