The Orrick Library Seminar Series

Seminar | September.12.2018 | 12:30pm - 2:00pm (Hong Kong Time)

Shadow capital refers to the practice of institutional investors, family offices and sovereign wealth funds deploying their capital alongside (or even in competition with) private equity funds. The rise of shadow capital boils down, in essence, to three things: (1) investors are concerned about the detrimental effect of rising costs on returns from their private equity investments; (2) they want increased autonomy as to how and when they invest their money; and (3) they have mountains of cash available to deploy.

To meet the challenges of shadow capital, fund managers need to think innovatively about how to accommodate these investor concerns. A GP's best assets are the direct-investment expertise and talent of its executives, developed and honed over years. As these skills are not possessed by most solo investors, GPs should capitalise on them as much as possible.

Please join Scott Peterman for an interactive session to discuss the following topics as we explore the private equity "shadowverse."

Specific topics we will cover include:

  • Drivers of PE Co-Investment Activity
  • The Appeal of Co-Investments
  • The Universe of Co-Investors
  • Common Issues Associated with PE Co-Investments
  • Types of PE Co-investment Activity
  • Affiliated Fund Co-Invests – Sister Funds
  • Affiliated Fund Co-Invests – Cousin Funds
  • LP Co-Invests
