9th Annual Private Equity Symposium


One of Private Equity at LBS’ key remits is to offer a global forum for debate where academics and practitioners from around the world exchange and debate academic findings and current industry topics.


The annual Private Equity Symposium is a cornerstone of this remit.


Private Equity at LBS was established in 2004 by Professor Eli Talmor and Professor Francesca Cornelli is the Academic Director.


Private Equity at LBS event ‘Searching for needles in a haystack: finding value in a crowded market’ took place on 7 and 8 June 2016.


Panels and keynotes explored different aspects and perspectives on the current private equity environment and the challenges and opportunities that private equity firms face as they strive to create value for their investors.


Private Equity at LBS once again brought together influential industry experts and academic thought leaders for two days of inspiring, thought provoking, open and lively debate.
