Welcome to the A Long Time In Finance Podcast; the long view of finance, markets and money as seen by two veteran City editors, Neil Collins and Jonathan Ford. Sponsored by Briefcase.News and hosted on Reaction.

This week’s episode asks whether it is the Twilight of the Private Equity Gods. Private equity firms have amassed vast fortunes for their owners by snapping up companies in a rising stock market using ultra cheap debt. But what happens when values go down and interest rates rise? They talk to US investor and private equity sceptic Dan Rasmussen about the coming buyout Götterdämmerung.
