HKVCA Private Equity Fundamentals Course 2019 - Module 3

Date: Thursday, 26 September 2019
Venue: Diamond Room, Unit B, 1/F, Bank Of America Tower, 12 Harcourt Road, Central, HK
Time: 14:00 to 16:30

Organized annually, the HKVCA’s Private Equity Fundamentals Course comprises seven tailormade modules and a case study session to provide participants with in-depth information and analysis of private equity and venture capital, either as industry entrants or for those seeking to refresh their skill sets. Covering the entire fund-raising process from strategy to distribution of returns, data on global funds and investment activity, current issues and fund marketing, it is particularly relevant for those practitioners keen to expand their technical ability and know-how.

Delivered by leading industry specialists and experts with experience in different fund strategies, marketing, deal making, and the pros and cons of investing in private equity as an asset class, each module will be taught relative to real case studies to show how investors finance through the different stages of a company’s lifecycle, and explain financing as financial intermediaries practice it. The course also includes a curated section devoted specifically to ESG investing, which plays an increasingly important role in determining the future financial performance of companies and their risk and return.
