As the global economy and financial markets become more integrated, the challenges of global investing increase.
Nowhere are the challenges greater than in private investment vehicles, such as hedge funds, private equity and real estate, with their onerous due diligence, monitoring, illiquidity and lack of transparency compounded by the vast differences to be found among countries' legal systems, tax regimes and political risks.
Join us December 6-7, 2012, for a rare gathering of thought leaders in business and academia who will examine the complexities of managing global private investments and strategies for maximizing return.
Plenary panels and break-out sessions will explore:
- Private Equity – Risk and return characteristics of private equity funds outside the United States.
- Hedge Funds – Crowded traditional portfolios, compelling opportunities in emerging countries and evolving risk-return tradeoffs.
- Real Estate - Global real estate investing and new efforts to benchmark investment performance.
An invitation-only junior faculty research roundtable follows December 7-8.
Conference registration is limited, so make plans now to attend. We look forward to seeing you in Chapel Hill.
