In this episode, Eurazeo CEO Virginie Morgon discusses her investment strategy in response to the pandemic, the company’s renewed ESG commitments and why she thinks having self-confidence is key to a successful investing career.
On the lessons learned from Morgon’s investing career: “If you have sufficient self-confidence – and it's not just about one person; it's about teamwork – and trust that your judgment is the right one. Don't feel pressurized, which might even change your mind, by the majority even if you're sort of alone on [your] judgments. It doesn't mean that you're wrong. You may actually well be very right.”
On best advice to new investors: “Things are never as bad as you fear and they are actually neither as good as you hope. So you build things in time. Private equity is sort of a marathon. It's not a sprint.”
