PEAK: Women’s Private Equity Summit
March 10 - March 11
While we await a return to our in-person Summit later this year, our Virtual Summit will provide you with access to timely, interactive discussions on how the industry has changed over the past year and how both LPs and GPs are thinking about moving forward. You’ll also have the unique opportunity to connect virtually in small networking groups and 1-on-1 meetings, all from the comfort of your own home or office.
Over the course of two, half-days, leading industry professionals will discuss investing, fundraising, liquidity, co-investing, due diligence strategies, and the continued push for diversity.
Program highlights include:
A Shot in the Arm: How Will Investing Be Altered as Society Reopens? With vaccination rates increasing, there are signs that things may be getting back to normal. But what will that mean for VC and PE professionals? How will the events of 2020 impact dealmaking? What sectors will garner interest and where might valuations be headed? Our panel provides perspective on how they and their firms are thinking about these key questions.
The CIO View: Looking Back and Looking Forward Being a chief investment officer is no easy task. 2020 just added to the stress, especially given the stock market’s see-sawing. In this special interview, Roz Hewsenian, longtime CIO of the Helmsley Trust, sits down to discuss how the foundation navigated the past year, how it is thinking about the year to come, and the role that private equity and venture capital is playing, or may play, in those plans.
Weighing the Impact of the Pandemic: The LP Perspective Institutional investors deployed billions of dollars over the past year, much of that coming while they were in their homes. In addition to backing funds, they also, in some cases, took part in deals as well. But will 2020 be looked at as having been a good vintage year? And what about the way business was conducted. Will that continue? Our panel discusses how they’ve dealt with the past year and what they are seeking going forward – both in terms of returns and the approach of PE & VC firms.
