By Dr Brian Moretta

Before joining Newable, Sanjeev Gordhan worked on the advisory side of the industry. He has a lot of experience in helping investors decide how much money to put into venture capital and unquoted investments.

In this episode of The EIS Navigator, Brian and Sanjeev discuss how investors should approach this choice and the difference between theory and practice. They also get into how you should spread your venture capital allocation between different segments, discussing how risk and value interact. And of course, they can’t ignore COVID and how investors are reacting to it in their portfolios.
