Private Equity Analyst Conference Focuses on Fast Pace Industry

This past September 20th and 21st the 19th annual Private Equity Analyst Conference took place at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria.   Bringing together over 600 private equity institutional investors, general partners, funds- of-funds managers and specialized advisors, the PEAC focused on trends and current events of key interest to the industry, such as the upcoming presidential election, the IPO market, overseas investment opportunities, fundraising and more.

Participants were able to gain expert insight through one-on-one interviews with industry celebrities such as Ted Schlein of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, T. Bondurant French of Adams Street Partners, William Conway of The Carlyle Group and Scott Nuttall of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. Attendees were able to understand more deeply what lies in store for the future of private equity, which sectors are the most popular today, how higher security and more complex regulation effects investing, and other significant topics for the industry.

Because this is an election year Jerry Seib, the Washington Bureau Chief for the Wall Street Journal spoke on what the results of the election could mean for the world of business and investing.
