Over the past year, the financial services sector has generated more and more middle-market private equity investment opportunities -- ranging from mortgage technology to payment processing to unbanked consumers.


There’s also the fact that more credit is available than last year at this time.  Some business models written off for dead are bouncing back -- such as subprime auto financing -- as lenders are adjusting their credit quality criteria in a new willingness to make loans.


Recent representative middle-market activity includes LLR Partners’ investment in capital markets technology provider Lightspeed Financial, Parthenon Capital Partners’ acquisition of financial planning firm H. D. Vest Financial Services and TPG Growth’s acquisition of AGS Transact, a third-party ATM systems provider.


The financial services sector is far broader than just specialty finance and community banking, and the potential rewards can be highly appealing.


That’s why you’ll have more to learn than ever before at The Capital Roundtable’s Fifth Annual Financial Services Conference on Wednesday, November 2, in New York. 


          Featuring all-NEW content, this conference is going to take a comprehensive look

          at today’s demands by both commercial businesses and consumers for financial



          Whether you’re considering investments for 2012, or looking for growth strategies

          for financial services companies in your current portfolio, make plans now to join

          us for --


                       Private Equity Investing

                       In Financial Services Companies --
                       Finding Profitable Opportunities

                       Beyond the Banks & Specialty Finance


Plus when you sign up now for this conference, you can keep money in your own pocket with our special Early Bird Discount -- a generous savings of $400!


LLR Partners’ Mitchell Hollin & 20 Other Experts

Provide 360 Degrees of Perspective


To help us assure timely, all-NEW content for this encore conference on Wednesday, November 2, in New York, we’re delighted to welcome as our chair for this event Mitchell L. Hollin of LLR Partners in Philadelphia -- one of the private equity industry’s most successful financial services investors.


Mitchell has more than 20 years of private equity investment experience.  He joined LLR Partners in 2000.  He began his private equity career at Apax Partners, and previously co-founded Advanta Partners.


Currently, he is the lead director for Heartland Payment Systems (NYSE: HPY), Chairman of Fleet One, and serves on the boards of Lightspeed Financial and Healthcare Finance Group.  Mitchell holds an MBA and a BS from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated with honors.


Joining Mitchell will be a team of 20 panelists who bring substantial experience with financial services deals to the dais.  You’ll hear from GPs, portfolio company operating executives, investment bankers, lenders, consultants, and more -- helping you discover sound approaches for new investments and growth strategies for your portfolio company holdings.


And from a competitive standpoint, you have a wider window of opportunity.  With so many sub-segments, each with fairly high complexities, there’s a barrier of entry to financial services that works to your advantage.  There is very little overpopulation, so choosing a niche and focusing on it smartly can bring you a very appealing place in which to play.


What’s more,  you’ll hear how some PE firms that tried to become big players in financial services got burned in recent years, leaving a void for a new wave of firms who are playing things differently through inevitable up and down cycles.


A Must-Attend Day For Everyone Wanting To Be More Knowledgeable


At this conference, we’ll look at how the federal credit and regulatory climates are going to impact middle-market investing and portfolio companies over the coming two years.  We’ll bring you up-to-date about the requirements unfolding from Dodd-Frank, as well as the likely effect of the Durbin Amendment on financial services products.


We’ll be digging into such areas as mortgage technology, where dislocation of the wholesale mortgage market has provided real opportunities for new emerging players in the residential sector and new systems providers who are changing the landscape.


We’ll explore the growth of the underbanked consumer segment, serving the population segment that doesn’t have bank accounts -- whether by lack of assets or lack of confidence. These consumers have fueled growth in prepaid cards, international remittance services, and other businesses.


In addition, we’ll look at how capital markets technology is permanently altering the trading universe, affecting traditional equity, options and commodity exchanges.  Plus we’ll also cover the next great frontier, mobile payments, as it moves from a venture capital play into the private equity arena.


Register now for candid answers to the questions on every financial services investor’s mind --


  • What segments within financial services are likely to offer the best opportunities for investors in 2012?
  • What are some of the main challenges financial services companies face today?
  • How is increased availability of credit driving financial services investments forward?
  • Is the exit market improving for financial services companies, and why?
  • What requirements are still unfolding from Dodd-Frank, and how will they affect financial services companies?
  • Will the Durbin Amendment force significant change in the payment universe, and how can financial services firms prepare themselves?
  • How do you master the barriers to entry for middle-market private equity investments in financial services?
  • How much competition to new financial services investors face, and where are the most open playing fields?
  • How can you help your portfolio companies prosper in today’s changing climate?
  • And much, much more.
