Private Capital

For today’s private market investors the environment continues to be challenging with record amounts of dry powder already in the coffers, rich valuations, and the ease of raising capital. Despite this, there is still business to be done and opportunities to deploy better, smarter capital. In this intimate briefing event, Bloomberg will examine whether cracks in the PE bubble are beginning to show, what the numbers are telling us for 2019, where the challenges and opportunities lie in specific strategies like ESG and Real Estate.

Deploying Capital in Real Estate

With favorable market conditions, a record long economic expansion, and more demand from institutions we’re seeing healthy growth in private equity real estate. From core, core-plus, opportunistic, value-added, distressed, and debt—Bloomberg will gather top fund managers to explore what key markets and strategies funds are finding opportunity. While private equity real estate funds remain flush with cash, more intense competition this late in the cycle is proving harder and harder to place capital.  Additionally, from the boom in e-commerce to interest rates and asset valuations what factors will fuel further demand or challenge the path of the current market?
