European Private Equity Forum - New York


The BVCA European Private Equity Forums connect North American institutional investors with European private equity and venture capital fund managers. The forums are designed exclusively for LPs and investment consultants to gather insights on trends, opportunities and other developments in the European market. The European participants include 10-12 GPs meeting a total of 100 Limited Partners in cities across the US. Each forum features a mixture of presentations and panel discussions on topics such as investment strategy, regional and sector specialisation, fund performance and the changing appetite and needs of North American investors. One-on-one meetings are also arranged on request. This series is exclusive to European GPs and North American LPs.
