I would like to draw your attention to the LP panel – we have James Clarke from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Mike Dutton from Calpers, Ross Ponder from AllState and Barry Gonder from Grove Street advisors all discussing the changing climate in fundraising and deal-making, and how the relationships are changing with LP’s and GP’s.

Furthermore, we have the fundraising circuit, new to Buyouts East this year, in which we dedicate 90 minutes of the program to networking. LP’s with stellar reputations such as Siguler Guff, Abbott Capital, RCP Advisors, INVESCO Private Capital and WestLB Mellon asset Management man tables so attendees can swap business cards and chat. This leads nicely into the cocktail reception after the conference.

Finally we have our 3rd annual awards dinner which promises to be a fitting finale to the day. The awards dinner celebrates success in private equity, but it also provides a great opportunity to entertain clients and network some more. Several firms attend who are not nominated for an award, because they value the networking time with the most successful firms in private equity.
