The Yale SOM Private Equity Club wishes to thank the speakers, panelists, sponsors, guests, and the Yale Club of New York for making the 2012 conference such a success.
Unleashing Value in a Mature Industry
With nearly $2 trillion in committed capital and close to half of that not yet invested, the pursuit of unique investment opportunities is vital to the lifeblood of the industry. The world of private equity continues to expand to include investment categories such as social investing, angel investing, distressed and emerging markets. Local relationships no longer trump global networks.
Not long ago, our focus was primarily on highly leveraged transactions predicated on financial engineering. Today, value creation through operational improvements, innovation and financial engineering are vital to generating returns, both financial and social. This shift has changed the way deals are sourced, financed, and executed- and in turn the skills necessary to succeed.
The Yale School of Management Private Equity Conference is the premier university-backed, professionally-focused industry conference. Each year, we bring together the foremost thought leaders in the field to examine the prevailing issues of the day and provide insight on how they are tackling their toughest challenges.
We invite you to join us at our twelfth annual conference on November 9, 2012 as we discover how to unleash value in a mature industry.
