“As the global economy and financial markets become more integrated, the challenges of global investing increase,” said conference co-chair Gregory W. Brown, Sarah Graham Kenan Distinguished Scholar and Professor of Finance at Kenan-Flagler. “Nowhere are the challenges greater than in private investment vehicles.”

The conference will feature keynote addresses and panel discussions on the experience of industry in each of the three areas – hedge funds, private equity and real estate.
