In my conversations with searchers and investors, I've discussed some interesting perspectives on how the economy (and possible outcomes of COVID 19) could affect the search environment. I would love to hear additional thoughts from this community.

In particular, what are your hypotheses on...
* Search funds launched (continue to grow in popularity in the near term?)
* Search fund investment (contract or expand?)
* Lower MM PE/M&A activity (increase or slow down?)
* Overall acquisition valuations/multiples (generally increase or decrease?)
* Other high impact trends (e.g., industries to watch, unique search strategies that will prove successful, characteristics of businesses that will command a 'COVID' premium or discount?)

Would love thoughts on any/all of the above. If interested, I'm also happy to share my synthesis based on the conversations I've had so far (feel free to DM). Thanks!
