This year the global event will be held in Miami, Florida from 24-26 March and has several hundred registered participants.
Additionally, one of the firm’s finance partners, Anna-Lise Wisdom, will be participating in a panel discussion – “A Subscription Finance Debate”.
Simon Raftopoulos, Global Head of Private Equity and Partner in the Corporate Department, will also be attending the conference and noted, “This conference is always well-subscribed, which speaks to the increased frequency and level of transactions taking place in the private equity industry markets.”
“It comes off the back of a strong year for Private Equity M&A activity in the Offshore region,” added Mr. Raftopoulos. “There were 161 offshore-incorporated companies targeted by investments financed via Private Equity and Venture Capital, the highest volume seen over the last five years. Collectively, over USD 27 billion was spent.”
