Private Equity Fundraising
There were 1700 delegates at SuperReturn in Berlin last week.
Benjamin Ball chaired an afternoon of private equity fundraising discussions with:
Marc St John, CVC Capital Partners; Bob Brown, Riverstone; Mounir Guen, MVision; Martin Dunnett, Warburg Pincus; Catherine Lewis La Torre, Fondinvest; Jo Taylor, Teachers; and Joakim Bergander, Third Lake.
Some of the private equity fund raising highlights from these panels and other discussions included:
Meredith Rerisi of Abbot Capital highlights importance of good first impressions when meeting GPs. @BenjaminBallA
Recurring comment from LPs: Worst fund pitch is when one person does all the talking despite all team present @BronwynBailey
GPs should keep it short and sweet. LPs sit through hundreds of these meetings per year. And keep it lively! @EbersoleJamie
Orin Wicks of Hall Capital sees $1tn of capital in Private Equity chasing deals globally – pushing prices up. @BenjaminBallA
