Seizing the moment: Spotlight on distressed and opportunistic investing

Kelly Ryan, Raphael Fishbach, Amy Johannes, Jordan Suppan

In the first quarter of 2021, over one third of the $363.8 billion existing dry powder in the US was sitting in either opportunistic or distressed funds. With global forbearance coming to an end, is this a once in a century opportunity for distressed funds and their backers? How are the next 18 months going to play out?

Jacob Werner, Lora Gotcheva, Frédérick Magnon, Joe Marconi, Leslie Wohlman Himmel

Increasing FDA approvals, including the record-breaking COVID-19 vaccines, are among the factors creating a surge in funding for the life sciences sector. Who are the market-leading managers and how to tell a manager is merely on for the ride? What kind of operational expertise does a manager need to create value in this highly specialised field and where are the next big opportunities for LPs?

What does office occupancy look like on a global scale?

Anthony Santiago, Lee Menifee, Tal Peri , Ryan Simonetti

The office sector has tumbled from its pre-Covid, no. 3 spot in LP interest, and now the world waits to see what the workplace will look like going forward. Even with the demand for traditional office space decreasing, the common sentiment is that office will never be obsolete. This leaves more questions than answers. How is the sector adapting and what are the key drivers? When and how will people come back to work? Which regions will see an uptick in the need for physical office space, and what are occupiers doing to attract tenants? Hear the answers to these questions and more.
