2:35 PM - 3:15 PMAlternative Assets Fundraising: Steering Through Rough Terrain

Industry leaders sit down to discuss finding opportunities in 2023 given the macroeconomic headwinds that arose in 2022 and the first half of the year. Fundraising activity has all but dried-up across asset classes and Investors are watching valuations and adjusting strategies accordingly. What do experts anticipate for the second half of 2023; Are valuations low enough to attract increased levels of dry powder? What sectors are outperforming their counterparts? Are LPs favoring larger, more experienced managers amid market uncertainty?

3:15 PM - 3:30 PMNetworking Break
3:30 PM - 4:10 PMPrivate Credit: A Complementary Source of Return

Experts discuss the volatility of the equity market and how higher monetary policy rates have pushed Treasury yields higher. Demand for debt funds has increased, largely because private credit loan pricing is more certain and less susceptible to volatility than syndicated loans or junk bonds. Join us to learn if Managers will continue encouraging LPs to invest in private credit given the current environment, especially direct lending, and what changes are on the horizon.
