Snapshot from 2018

Snapshot from 2018:

  • Attendees heard how firms must adapt to survive in this highly-competitive and hyperactive market, including the niche strategies GPs are adopting to keep ahead of their competitors.
  • Roundtables discussed how a potential Brexit shamble could disrupt the European debt market and how firms can mitigate their exposure to risk.
  • Learned more about the importance of mitigating reputational, practical and financial risk through adopting stronger environmental, social and governance policies, as well as why this is on top of investors’ priority lists today.
  • Heard from property investors on the state of the real estate market and how that could fit into a private debt portfolio.
