At the beginning of this year, when we began planning for Citrin Cooperman’s fourth annual Independent Sponsor Report, the economic outlook was bright. However, in the span of just a few weeks, a global pandemic ground many economies to a halt. In the midst of this seismic shift in economic reality and expectation, it was important for us to continue our independent sponsor research and capture the significance of these challenging times while exploring their implications for the future.

As this year’s "2020 Independent Sponsor Special Report: Weathering the Storm” shows, independent sponsors are rising to meet these challenges.
