TRACKED DISCUSSION GROUPS – Concurrent Sessions

Concurrent SPOTLIGHT Discussion Groups shine a light on Private Equity, Venture Capital, Hedge Funds, Real Estate, Direct Lending and the Regulatory Environment. Facilitated by leaders in each asset class and subject area, these discussions provide a small-group forum for a candid and in-depth look at topics important to general partners, limited partners and advisors to the industry.

SPOTLIGHT ON PRIVATE EQUITY
Getting Creative: What Must Firms Do to Invest Successfully?
Private equity firms globally had an estimated $800 billion of dry powder at the end of 2016. With so much competition for deals, firms have had to get creative in terms of finding investments and building value. In this panel, you'll hear from both GPs and LPs as they describe the steps that they or their managers are taking to try to stay ahead of the pack and generate necessary returns.
Panelists:
  • Laureen Costa, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager, JPMorgan Asset Management (Facilitator)
  • Laura Grattan, Managing Director, Thomas H. Lee Partners
  • Azra Kanji, Partner, ABRY Partners
  • Tricia Patrick, Managing Director, Advent International
SPOTLIGHT ON VENTURE CAPITAL
Reality Sets In: Which Technologies Will Drive Venture Investing?
There's been a lot of buzz about such things as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, personalized genomics and virtual reality, but how do venture investors view these technologies? Which technologies do they think will produce the most opportunity and best returns? Our panelists give their take on where they're investing and what they are steering clear of.
Panelists:
  • Cynthia H. Tseng, CFA, Partner, Fairview Capital Partners (Facilitator)
  • Martina F. Aufiero, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Safeguard Scientifics
  • Nilanjana Bhowmik, Founder and General Partner, Converge
  • Karimah Es Sabar, Chief Executive Officer and Partner, Quark Venture
SPOTLIGHT ON HEDGE FUNDS
How Is the Tide Turning for Long/Short Strategies?
Discontent with the performance of hedge funds – and long/short equity funds specifically – has been well documented. At the same time, investors are hungry for alpha and many are wary of shedding long/short exposure at exactly the wrong time. Our panel will discuss the outlook for the long/short sector, ways in which managers are navigating the current market environment and areas of opportunity ahead.
Panelists:
  • Alex Christine Douglas, Associate Investment Manager, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (Facilitator)
  • Laurie R. Goodman, Director, Head of Equity Long/Short Hedge Fund Investments, Merrill Lynch
  • Kathryn Klebacha, Senior Portfolio Advisor, Aksia
  • Janet Perumal, CFA, Managing Director and Investment Director, WAI, Wellington Management Company
SPOTLIGHT ON REAL ESTATE
Sell? Buy? Hold? What's the Best Course of Action in 2018?
Thanks to generating solid returns, the real estate sector has become a favorite of institutional investors, with record amounts of capital pumped into funds in recent years. Firms, though, have struggled to find appropriately priced deals as valuations have surged. And with interest rates on the rise, there are real questions about what can be expected from the sector in the coming year. Our panelists discuss what they are seeing, the opportunities that may be presented and where capital may be deployed in 2018.
Panelists:
  • Alisa Mall, Director of Investments, Carnegie Corporation of New York (Facilitator)
  • Adriana de Alcantara, Managing Director, Portfolio Management, TH Real Estate
  • Janice Lin, Director, Real Estate Investments, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB)
  • Meena Thever, Director, BlackRock Alternatives Specialists
SPOTLIGHT ON DIRECT LENDING
Will Regulatory Changes Slow the Opportunity for PE Firms?
Banks in the United States and in Europe were forced to curtail their lending activities after the passage of post-financial crisis regulations. This, in turn, paved the way for private equity firms to step into the void and become active providing credit to small and mid-sized enterprises. But, does the forecast change if Dodd-Frank is repealed or regulatory changes occur as Britain pulls out of the European Union? Our panel takes on the state of the direct lending sector, the opportunities ahead and how to continue to win over LPs and grow.
Panelists:
  • Agata R. Praczuk, Associate Director, MetLife Investments (Facilitator)
  • Christina Fang, Director, KKR
  • Alissa Grad, Managing Director, Golub Capital
  • LaDonna Neuhaus, Director of Insurance Strategy, Beach Point Capital Management

SPOTLIGHT ON REGULATION
Staying Compliant in an Ever-Evolving Regulatory Environment: What Firms Must Do
With the arrival of a new administration in Washington, the push to get alternative investment firms out from the under the gaze of the SEC has been renewed. In the meantime, the pressure on firms to stay compliant remains. Our panel gives its perspective on the state of regulation in the new administration, the issues under the most SEC scrutiny and the steps that firms are taking to remain in the agency's good graces.
Panelists:
  • Erica Williams, Partner, Kirkland & Ellis LLP (Facilitator)
  • Stephanie Avakian, Acting Director, Division of Enforcement, U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission
  • Tabea Hsi, Managing Director, Chief Legal Office, Blackstone Group

TRACKED DISCUSSION GROUPS – THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL POLITICS ON …

Concurrent Discussion Groups focus on key issues that GPs and LPs are facing as political and regulatory changes take hold around the world.

THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL POLITICS ON
Private Equity
The world experienced seismic changes in 2017. First BREXIT, followed by the game-changing Trump administration. Then significant elections in France, Germany and China. As a result, PE firms scrambled throughout the year to understand the impact of these events on proposed deals, existing portfolio companies, and, of course, the firms themselves. Our panelists discuss how they and their firms are dealing with the geopolitical climate, regulatory changes and what may lie ahead for the PE industry.
Panelists:
  • Lisa Sun, Investment Manager, Coller Capital (Facilitator)
  • Vivianne Akriche, Managing Director, Eurazeo Capital
  • Aoifinn Devitt, Chief Investment Officer, Policeman's Annuity & Benefit Fund of Chicago
  • Britta Lindhorst, Managing Director and Head of European Private Equity, HQ Capital
  • Alisa A. Wood, Member, KKR
THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL POLITICS ON
Venture Capital
The days of VCs simply looking for the best teams and the greatest technologies have passed. Today, VCs also need to consider an array of outside issues, including government regulations, limits on visas and taxes. Our panel discusses how political changes are affecting or could affect their portfolio companies, their investment decisions and the venture industry as a whole.
Panelists:
  • Charlotte Savercool, Director of Government Affairs, National Venture Capital Association (Facilitator)
  • Jan Garfinkle, Founder and Managing Director, Arboretum Ventures
  • Melissa Guzy, Founder and Managing Partner, Arbor Ventures
  • Gurpreet Manku, Assistant Director General and Director of Policy, British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (BVCA)
THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL POLITICS ON
Hedge Funds
Uncertainty in the marketplace is an element that many hedge funds thrive on. That has certainly been the case in 2017 between President Trump's first year, the effort by the U.K. to pull out of the European Union and major elections in Germany, France and China. Our panelists discuss these moves and the impact they've had on the actions of and results within the hedge fund industry.
Panelists:
  • Kristina P. Koutrakos, Director of Portfolio Strategy, Virginia Retirement System (Facilitator)
  • Kalina Berova, Principal, Ontario Municipal Employees' Retirement System (OMERS)
  • Nancy Davis, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer, Quadratic Capital Management
  • Anne Mathias, CFA, Global Rates and FX Strategist, Vanguard Fixed Income Group
  • Tania Reif, Portfolio Manager / Macro, Citadel
THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL POLITICS ON
Real Estate
Location. Location. Location. The magic words of real estate investing. But investors also need to be concerned with such things as interest rates, economic activity and tax and regulatory changes. With upheavals in Washington and in Europe, real estate GPs and LPs are giving more thought to where to invest and how to structure transactions. Our panelists tell us how they are thinking about recent political change and the impact it may have on investing and returns.
Panelists:
  • Indeesh Tangeraas, Head of EMEA Real Assets, Cambridge Associates (Facilitator)
  • Elizabeth Bell, Principal, Jaguar Growth Partners
  • Joan N. Hayden, Vice President and Corporate Counsel, PGIM Real Estate
  • Monica O'Neill, Senior Advisor, Tristan Capital Partners
THE IMPACT OF POLITICS ON
Tax Reform: Weighing Its Potential Effect
Tax reform is a major priority for the Trump Administration and Congress, an action that could have significant ramifications for alternative investment managers. The panel gives its perspective on what has unfolded, the steps that managers and LPs should be taking and the impact of tax reform on investment valuations and returns.
Panelists:
  • Linda Grogan, Managing Director, KPMG (Facilitator)
  • Amy Boyle, Managing Director, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Compliance Officer, GTIS Partners
  • Eve Mongiardo, Chief Operating Officer and Partner, Irving Place Capital
  • Jill Raker, Managing Partner, Greenbriar Equity Group
  • Angela Russo, Partner, Kirkland & Ellis
THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL POLITICS ON
Emerging Markets
President Trump has not shown an eagerness to push for investing abroad. "America First" was a key theme of his campaign and inauguration speech. So how has the anti-immigration fervor coming out of Washington and in parts of Europe affected the efforts of firms to invest in emerging markets? Are things as they were a year ago or has it become tougher for firms to not only do deals but also raise capital from LPs? Our panel answers these key questions and discusses what may lie ahead for this sector.
Panelists:
  • Carolyn Campbell, Co-Founding Partner and Managing Director, Emerging Capital Partners (Facilitator)
  • Eileen M. Fargis, Co-Head, IFC African, Latin American and Caribbean Fund LP, IFC Asset Management Co.

THE OUTLOOK FOR …
Fundraising by Private Equity and Venture Capital Firms
Record amounts of capital have been invested in private equity and venture capital funds in recent years. But it's not always an easy process for GPs, especially with LPs trying to reduce the number of firm relationships.

  • Lindsey Press, Senior Vice President, Investor Relations, Silver Lake
THE OUTLOOK FOR …
Hedge Funds to Win Over LPs and Raise Fresh Capital
The past few years have not been kind to hedge fund managers. Thanks to low returns, many have returned capital to investors and shut down. At the same time, many institutional investors have scaled back or pulled out of hedge funds all together. Will that change in 2018? Will hedge funds find a more receptive audience to their message? Our panelists give their views on what it will take to raise funds.
Panelists:
  • Alifia Doriwala, Managing Director and Partner, The Rock Creek Group (Facilitator)

  • Lissa Rosenthal, Chief Investment Officer, Rosh Capital Management
THE OUTLOOK FOR …
Fund Finance: Bridging and Beyond
The fund finance market has grown rapidly in recent years and has evolved from bridging capital calls to other permitted uses.

The panel will discuss these latest market trends, including structures, best practices and advantages for both GPs and LPs.

THE OUTLOOK FOR …
Infrastructure: Where Will Investors Find Success
Mention infrastructure in the United States and you'll invariably hear about the country's crumbling roads and bridges. But for infrastructure investors, the opportunities exist globally and in numerous segments beyond transportation. Energy, water, hospitals and even data centers are attracting attention. The abundance of opportunities is why firms such as KKR, Blackstone and others are seeking to raise multi-billion-dollar funds. Our panelists give their take on how LPs and GPs are looking at the sector, the segments they are looking at today and the ones that may be appealing in the not-so-distant future.
Panelists:
  • Tamara Larsen, Director, Perella Weinberg Partners (Facilitator)
  • Maria Kang, Managing Director, Rubicon Infrastructure Advisors
  • Kathryn Liao, Senior Associate, Allstate Investments
  • Irene Mavroyannis, Managing Director, Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets
THE OUTLOOK FOR …
LPs as Dealmakers …
Seeking to drive down fees and generate bigger returns, LPs are becoming more active on the investing front, both directly and as co-investors. Will this move prove successful and long-lasting, and will it change the LP-GP dynamic? Our panel discusses what LPs must do to make it work and what GPs must do to adapt to this change.
Panelists:
  • Shruti Shah, Partner, KPMG (Facilitator)
  • Sandra Bosela, Global Head of Private Equity, OPTrust
  • Neda Daneshzadeh, Co-Founder and Partner, Prelude Growth Partners
  • Marcia Haydel, Managing Director, Performance Equity Management
  • Aviva Shneider, Vice President, and Co-Head, Direct Private Equity, U.S. and Latin America, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ)
THE OUTLOOK FOR …
Impact Investing: What Will Keep LPs Interested in the Sector?
Institutional investors have pumped record amounts of capital into impact investing funds in recent years, attracted by the potential for financial and social returns. But what will it take to keep these investors attracted to the sector? Do firms have to return a certain number or is demonstrating true change in Africa, Latin America or even the United States enough? Our panel discusses the expectations for impact investing and what it needs to deliver.
Panelists:
  • Ruth Horowitz, Chief Operating Officer, IFC Asset Management Co. (Facilitator)
  • Elizabeth Burgess, Partner and Head of the Bridges U.S. Sustainable Growth Fund, Bridges Fund Management

KEYNOTE PANEL DISCUSSION
QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS. QUESTIONS. WHAT ARE LPS SEEKING?
Whether they are investing in private equity, venture capital, real estate or hedge funds, limited partners are after one key thing: Solid returns. But to find the best means of generating those returns, LPs are digging deeper than ever before. They are not only taking harder look at firms, their track record and composition, but also questioning whether they might be better served to do their own deals. Our panel of top LPs shares their perspective on how they are looking at the investment landscape heading into 2018, the questions they are asking and the answers they are seeking. They'll also field questions that are on your mind as the Women's Alternative Investment Summit comes to a close.
