HKVCA Private Equity Fundamentals Course 2018

The HKVCA’s Private Equity Fundamentals Course offers a comprehensive analysis of the private equity and venture capital business. It provides in-depth technical and practical know-how for those individuals seeking to increase their knowledge or who want to energize and elevate their existing skill set. Specially developed modules mean that the course is particularly helpful for those who are keen to enhance their practical competency and gain greater industry insight. 
Providing a deep understanding of the mechanism underpinning the development of a firm, leading industry practitioners and experts with unparalleled experience in deal-making, deal protection and the allocation of risk, structuring, company value-creation and exits will teach each module. Drawing on actual case studies, the instructors will try to illustrate how investors finance through the different stages of a company’s lifecycle, and explain financing as financial intermediaries see it. This year’s course will also include a curated section devoted specifically to ESG, given its growing importance and role in investment practices and decisions.
