Pepperdine to HUB Readers: Kindly Take Our Survey

Beginning today, in an effort to collect and return some free information about the PE industry, Pepperdine University in Malibu is inviting “senior lenders, asset-based lenders, mezzanine funds, private equity groups, venture capital firms, angel investors, factors, privately held businesses and business appraisers” to complete its 25-minute online questionnaire.

For what it’s worth, contributors to the school’s fourth annual study, which aims to gauge current investor behavior—from how much capital is typically accessible right now for a particular kind of financing event, to what benchmarks must be met to qualify for that capital—receive a complimentary aggregated summary report based on their responses in advance of the report’s general distribution.

The results are expected six to eight weeks after the questionnaire is closed on Friday, Sept. 17.
