Certior founder Ari Jauho named as one of the 30 most influential people in private debt by Private Debt Investor

Ari Jauho, one of the three founders of Certior Capital, has been named as one of the 30 most influential people in private debt, according to a recent article by Private Debt Investor magazine. “Pasi Pihlajamaa and Timo Hara have built their own solid reputations”, states the article, “But Jauho has been a tireless campaigner for private debt – a trooper on the conference circuit and a beater of the drum who has done much to encourage Finnish pension capital to become a major source of capital for the asset class. The Certior team claims to have made more than 50 primary, secondary and co-investments across private credit and is a big supporter of differentiated, first time managers”.
