Listen closely, and you can hear a soft rumble in the PE market. It’s the sound of LPs taking off the brakes and looking once again to invest. In April alone, an impressive $24 billion in new capital commitments were raised.
And that’s good news -- to a point.
While the drought of Q1 is behind us, and the opportunities of 2010 are beckoning, yesterday’s fundraising strategies no longer apply. In fact, you can pretty much take long-term strategic thinking off the table until the economy settles back into a predictable pattern.
What you need most of all right now are specific, actionable short-term tactics you can apply over the next few months to achieve traction, regain momentum, and raise your share of the dry powder that’s out there. Forget theory -- you want the know-how on who to see and what you should (and shouldn’t) say.
All of which will be on our table -- The Capital Roundtable’s Tenth Semi-Annual MasterClass™ On Succeeding At Fundraising. This October 7th in New York, we’ll bring you a complete action plan for winning the fundraising game under tough conditions and intense competition. Step-by-step, you’ll discover how to position your fund, find willing LPs, and demonstrate your benefits in a compelling manner.
And here’s one step that you should take immediately. Sign up now, and you’ll receive a $300 Early Bird Discount!
Sooner Than You Think.
Even the most sophisticated capital sources have been hit hard, and they’re taking more time than ever to commit their funds. So this is the time to begin beating the bushes and making your connections for 2010’s activity, even if you’ve spent these past months on the sidelines.
Attend this full-day MasterClass on Wednesday, October 7, 2009, and you’ll be in a prime position to attract new commitments as LPs turn on the flow.
What’s more, market conditions during Q4 may likely be the high point of 2009 -- meaning that capital will be available right now for funds that stand out from the pack. It’s difficult for vanilla buyout funds to get much attention, but niche funds, smaller middle-market funds, and emerging manager funds are sparking interest. This MasterClass will show you how to differentiate your fund and sharpen your pitch to land the attention of even the most hard-to-please investors.
And few PE professionals are as supremely well qualified to help you keep ahead of the curve than our chairman -- Steven Costabile, managing director and head of the private equity funds group for AIG Investments. Steve is responsible for overseeing all of AIG’s private equity funds investments in the developed markets, as well as sourcing, due diligence, monitoring, product development, and marketing.
Steve’s long history of superior private fund investing includes serving as a vice president at Credit Suisse First Boston in the Private Funds Group, as the senior investment officer of alternative investments for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and as the assistant director of venture capital for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Being first to bring you the information you need to succeed in today’s shifting times is what The Capital Roundtable’s MasterClasses are all about. We’re America’s leading conference organization for the private equity community, and our mission is to serve the needs of middle-market professionals better than traditional media or broad-brush seminar providers.
Expert Advice From Twenty PE Fundraising Specialists.
Along with Steve’s wise counsel, you’ll gain a slew of ideas and insights from 20 prominent presenters including GPs, LPs, placement agents, and other industry specialists. You’ll discover what LPs are looking for and what you must do now to get them on your side. You’ll learn how to tailor your pitch to changing realities and replace bull with candor. And you’ll hear who’s raising capital right now and where they’re finding welcome mats.
Attending this full-day MasterClass is an absolute must for both experienced and emerging managers who want to raise real capital, not false hopes. This is invaluable guidance that will stand you in good stead throughout 2009 and well into 2010, with the answers to spur your success --
