With attractively low valuations, motivated sellers, and a massive capital shortfall, the financial sector is offering rich opportunities for PE investors.

 

Private equity can take advantage of the financial services sector’s capital supply-and-demand imbalance, if it can come to grips with the sector’s unique regulatory environment.

 

Just consider some of the opportunities that are waiting to be seized --

  • Many depository institutions are looking to PE for capital -- and not just banks on life support or subject to seizure.
  • Specialty finance companies, who are enjoying reduced competition from the “shadow banking” market, are seeking capital to fill the hole on very attractive terms.
  • Life insurance and annuity providers are being required to hold more capital against their asset bases.
  • Distressed or capital-short financial services businesses are eager to shed non-core businesses.
  • The residential mortgage sector, which is being restructured from origination through servicing, offers attractive investment potential.

 

But there’s a catch.  As Wall Street emerges from the current financial crisis, a host of regulatory proposals are on the table that could prevent private equity from following its chosen investment course -- if caught unaware.

So before putting fresh capital into the financial services marketplace, investors need to be certain its transactions are structured to meet current and future terms and conditions.  

 

What’s more, current financial services portfolio companies should be positioned so their value can be maximized regardless of which proposals make their way through Congress, or which regulatory initiatives are implemented.

 

That’s why it’s such a timely move to attend our all-new, full-day MasterClass™ on How PE Firms Can Profit from Financial Services Investing -- Given the New Regulatory Environment.

 

On Thursday, October 15, 2009, in New York City, The Capital Roundtable will be presenting current, unique content designed to help you leverage today’s financial services climate and improve the probability of success.

 

Remember too that timeliness has its own reward. Reserve your seat by signing up now, and you can take advantage of a $400 Early Bird Discount!

 

20 PE Financial Services Experts Sort It Out for You.

 

From the Obama Administration's White Paper on Financial Regulatory Reform, to the FDIC's Proposed Statement of Policy, PE investors are well aware the rules are going to change. It’s good to know that our experts have their ears on Washington and will brief you on the latest developments affecting your investments.

 

This MasterClass will cover the entire gamut of financial services -- the areas subject to stricter regulation and those that are less capital intensive where you’re likely to have a freer hand. You’ll hear how other firms are choosing to pursue bank investments even within the new FDIC rules. And you’ll gain the latest insight on activity within such popular sectors as specialty finance and asset management.

 

Again this year, we are pleased to have Rob Glanville, a founder and managing director of New York-based PE firm Pine Brook Road Partners, chair this full-day MasterClass. Rob has over two decades of hands-on financial services experience as an investor and operator, and his take on current issues will set the tone for a fact-filled day.

 

Along with Rob will be a team of 20 panelists selected for their expertise in financial services. You’ll hear from PE investors who make investments of all sizes, investment bankers, professional services providers, and more -- all ready to offer their educated outlooks.

 

We plan an information-filled day to help you answer key questions --

  • What regulatory changes can you expect from the Obama administration that will affect PE investment?
  • How can you use the potential regulatory changes to your advantage?
  • Which financial services sectors are likely to be the most rewarding for PE investors?
  • Are there any surprises from Washington that could affect 2010 investing?
  • When must you consider club deals for your capital structure?
  • Why are today’s assisted transactions different from the last banking crisis?
  • What do you need to know about wholesale funding risk?
  • How has the insurance sector held up compared to the banking sector, and which niches offer the best opportunities?
  • What ways can you take advantage of today’s new focus on asset management?
  • How can you help your portfolio companies prosper amid tightened regulation and reduced access to capital?
  • What guidelines can help PE firms analyze the potential of distressed banks and other lenders?
  • And much, much more.

 

RSVP Now To Avoid Disappointment.
