According to the January 28, 2012 issue of The Economist, private equity is under attack for destroying jobs and under-delivering on returns.  Is it true?  Have private equity returns peaked? Can private equity firms deliver the double-digit returns it promises to investors?
It's important for financial professionals to be at the cutting edge of significant industry trends, and this half day symposium provides a forum to discuss crital economic and business issues impacting how capital is obtained or deployed in today's private equity and venture capital markets.  You will hear from a number of sophisticated investors as well as from the private equity firms themselves about whether private equity is still a viable asset class in today's "low-leverage" world. In addition, you will hear about the rise of the activist investor.  Plan to attend and gain a broader perspective on the current state of the private equity landscape and what the future holds for 2012 and beyond. 
The Private Equity Symposium is a collaborative event between Financial Executives International Canada (FEI Canada), the Canadian Institute of Chartered Business Valuators (CICBV), Toronto CFA Society and Canada’s Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (CVCA).     
Highlighting our closing keynote speaker:
David Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Managing Director, The Carlyle Group
