This is a two part series over two half days - 18th and 25th September, 2020, 9am - 12:30pm.
Introduction: With the recent introduction of the Private Funds Law to the Cayman Islands, Cayman-domiciled private equity funds are now required to submit audited financial statements annually with CIMA. This virtual 2-day offering will offer practitioners a deep dive into private equity investing and its nuances compared with mutual fund investing.
Speaker: David Oakes - David has over 25 years' experience in financial markets education. Before moving full-time into training and consulting, David was Director of Academic and Professional Education at the ICMA Centre at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, and Lecturer in Finance at Warwick Business School, the University of Reading and the University of Exeter.
Overview: In part 1 of this course, we describe the legal, administrative and financial structures used by private equity funds to meet their investment objectives and explain private equity investment strategies related to venture capital, buyouts, and growth equity. In part 2 of the course, we discuss important issues related to asset valuation, performance measurement, risk management and reporting for private equity funds. In each of these areas, we identify possible sources of conflict and misunderstanding and describe best-practice solutions to commonly encountered problems. Additional sessions in Part 2 look more closely at how private equity funds are responding to increased investor concern about environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues and discuss recent trends and likely future developments in private equity.
