CPE Information

Market volatility aside, private equity continues to provide institutional investors with a return they have come to expect. But it’s not easy to be in the private equity business. The basic business model remains the same: Find, build and exit good companies.

In 2017, debt is cheap, but valuations are not. Adding to the challenges of raising capital and closing deals are the numerous rules, regulations and investor demands changing the industry.

Join presenters from Crowe Horwath LLP, McGuireWoods LLP and PEF Services LLC, as well as other industry leaders, as they discuss important topics affecting front and back offices and how they can help drive fund success.
