Raising Private Equity Funds From Institutional Investors
Whether you’re an experienced GP raising another PE fund, or you’re launching a fund for the first time, it’s going to be harder than ever for you to attract capital from institutional investors in 2012 and 2013.
You can be successful -- but it’s not going to happen randomly. Now’s the time you must get good solid expert advice.
So please mark your calendar for Thursday, June 7.
The place to be is in New York City at the 13th edition of The Capital Roundtable’s full day conference -- “Raising Private Equity Funds from Institutional Investors.”
This is our most popular event, which has led dozens of private equity
GPs to the success they were hoping for.
You’ll hear from 20 experienced speakers including successful people from both sides of the table -- GPs with funds that they worked hard to win, and LPs who are offering to help you weather this storm. It’s sponsored by the acclaimed fund formation group of the law firm, Pepper Hamilton LLP.
These are all people who can tell you how to get introduced to the right people in the right way, and explain how to do your homework and create your documents so you avoid wasting time and spinning your wheels.
You already know that most pension funds, insurance companies, university and other endowments, sovereign wealth funds, and banks and trusts are pulling back.
And you know that they’re skeptical about considering emerging firms, cynical about management fees, and frustrated with new compliance regulations and costs.
And you know that the competition is ferocious. (Even placement agents who make their livelihoods helping GPs are facing hard times.)
And today, I have great news -- Sheryl Schwartz, senior managing director at private equity fund management firm Perseus LLC, is chairing this important event.
Sheryl herself has over 22 years of private equity investing experience as both a major institutional LP and now a lynchpin of seven private equity funds and more than $1.6 billion in capital commitments.
Prior to joining Perseus in 2010, Sheryl headed the alternative investment team at TIAA-CREF, one of the most distinguished pension management firms. There she lead a team of 10 professionals and was responsible for all fund, and direct private equity co-investment, and mezzanine debt opportunities sourced from TIAA’s relationships with fund managers. She holds both a BS and an MBA in finance from New York University.
Over the years, The Capital Roundtable has presented the industry’s premier conferences where middle-market firms hear how to succeed at fundraising.
Please be sure to mark your calendar today for Thursday, June 7, and make plans to join us in New York City.
