Private Equity and Venture Capital Group: The Economic Context

February 18, 2016
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

This event is supported by UBS Investment Bank

Since the financial crisis, private equity has benefitted greatly from sustained growth and recovery in major markets, valuation increases as well as the shift of capital from liquid low-yielding products. How long will this last? With interest rates expected to rise, will the surge of private debt funds come to an end? More generally, are we expecting a market correction or an economic slowdown? If so, what impact will that have on PE portfolios? Our speaker will explore current trends, as well as their impact on portfolio management.

Paul Donovan has been a Global Economist at UBS Investment Bank since 1992. He is responsible for formulating and presenting the UBS Investment Research global economic view.
