Throughout that period, strong team continuity and a consistent, methodical approach were as critical as ever, say Twin Brook Capital Partners head of underwriting Kim Trick and director Sarah Roche.

On the topic of underwriting, whether in a period of growth or through challenging times, “Our overall goal is to manage risk for our investors but also to provide surety of execution for our [private equity] clients,” says Trick.

When it comes to executing on this, Roche notes that team building – finding and retaining great people – and maintaining a “collaborative team approach” are key.
