FULL-DAY CONFERENCE

Thursday, February 14, 2013

8:00 am – 5:00 pm
New York City 

Designed to Meet the Needs of GPs, LPs, & Managers of Buyout, Growth Equity, Mezzanine, & Lending Funds, as Well as Independent Sponsors, Operating Partners, Portfolio Company Managers, and the Bankers, Lawyers, Accountants,

& Other Advisors Who Support Them

Faculty | Schedule | Registration | Location | Sponsorship | Audio Package |

More and more wealthy families and individuals -- and their advisors -- are investing in private equity funds – and even making direct investments in companies.

What’s more, they’re appreciating non-traditional approaches. New models, new structures, new ways of thinking. For instance, even backing independent private equity sponsors (fka, “fundless” sponsors).

You’ll hear how to locate and approach these typically secretive capital sources. After all, you can’t just google “family offices” and expect to find a meaningful list – they have absolutely no interest in branding themselves.

You’ll find just how to reach these elusive investors at The Capital Roundtable’s full-day encore conference, on Thursday, February 14, 2013 in New York.

 

With its need to protect the confidentiality of individuals’ wealth, the family office marketplace can be difficult to break into.  Both single-family and multi-family offices operate very differently from institutions.  They have no disclosure regulations and are not saddled with asset and liability matching requirements.

 

And the funds that family offices control are greater than many PE firms realize.  Investable assets can range from $25 million to $25 billion.

 

This makes family offices a more consistent source of capital than the institutional marketplace. Endowments and foundations have been hurt by the liquidity crunch, and must often make decisions based solely on time frames and return parameters.  In comparison, family office managers have ever‑evolving needs, so any time is a good time to make their acquaintance.

We’re delighted to announce that Laurence W. Levi, president and CEO of VO2 Partners in New York City will be chairing this encore conference on Thursday, February 14. With more than 20-years of experience working with entrepreneurs to drive corporate strategy, mergers & acquisitions and corporate development, Laurence will be sharing his extensive knowledge and key relationships.

Before founding VO2, Laurence founded Levi Littell Herbst & Co., a boutique investment bank with offices in New York, Chicago and London. Laurence was previously a transactional attorney at Latham & Watkins LLP, the head of strategy and M&A at the Kleiner Perkins-backed e-commerce firm EthnicGrocer, and global head of strategy and M&A at software company Transora Inc.

Laurence received his JD with honors from Columbia Law School and he received a BA with honors from the University of Wisconsin. He is a FINRA Series 7 and 63 registered representative and a board member of Transportation Alternatives and Triathlon America.

          receive special savings of $400!

 

20 Family Office Specialists Reveal Their Strategies & Tactics

 

We’ll have 20 knowledgeable speakers taking part in four brand-new panel presentations.  You’ll hear from prominent family office managers, GPs working with family office managers and wealthy individuals, plus PE industry specialists in making fundraising presentations, preparing pitch books, negotiating GP/LP agreements and arranging deal structures.

 

At our conference, we’ll explore best practices in developing and cultivating the relationships that are all-important.  It takes time to earn the confidence and trust of family office managers, and you need to present yourself in a memorable, meaningful way.  Quite often, individual family offices have ties to a particular industry due to heritage issues or philanthropic matters; your task is to identify and capitalize on these leanings.

 

We’ll cover the new role of family office consultants -- gatekeepers whose mission is to provide a first line evaluation of potential GPs.  It’s a boon to pass muster with these consultants and earn a place on their approved list -- many serve multiple family office clients and can expand your opportunities.

 

And we’ll explain how placement agents can help you get introduced to family offices you may not be able to reach on your own.  You’ll hear the best approaches to finding a good placement agent -- the questions to ask, the references to check and the fees to expect.

 

We’ll also discuss what you need to know about finding capital overseas.  While family offices in Europe and Asia have traditionally sought out larger established PE firms, the pendulum is swinging as the world grows smaller.

 

Register now to gain insight into these and other frequently-asked questions --

 

  • Are family offices and wealthy individuals becoming more or less committed to private equity?
  • What are some of the main challenges that affect fundraising from family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • How can you gain the trust of family offices that are overly cautious about risk and/or sticklers for transparency?
  • How does the flexibility of family offices compare to that of larger institutional investors?
  • What are the best ways for GPs to locate and approach family office managers -- cold calls, personal introductions, or both?
  • What are the middle-market sectors that seem to be most attractive to family offices and wealthy individuals today?
  • What are the key differences between domestic family offices and those based in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America?
  • What are today’s best practices for making presentations to family offices?  What common mistakes should GPs avoid?
  • What are the pros and cons of using placement agents for reaching family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • What key practices should GPs follow in meeting family offices’ needs for confidentiality?
  • And much, much more.

 

Meet The People Who Can Expand Your Family Circle.

 

This conference is one of the very few places where you can network with hard-to-find family office professionals.  We’ve built ample time into the agenda, including session breaks and an open lunch, where you can make contacts and connections with both your peers and our featured speakers.

 

You should attend this conference if you are a --

  • Emerging manager looking to raise your first fund.
  • Experienced GP ready to cast your net wider for potential investors.
  • GP wanting to learn how best to pitch to family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Family office manager seeking benchmarks to gauge your performance.
  • Fund of funds manager who wants to maximize upcoming opportunities.
  • Attorney or advisor involved with family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Placement agent seeking new sources for closing young funds.
  • PE communications professional involved with presentations to family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Executive search professional recruiting for the PE industry.

 

          Remember, register with our Early Bird Rate by January 4, 2013, and you’ll save

          $400 off our standard fee!  Please make your reservation now so you’re not

          disappointed. We’ll be looking forward to greeting you.
