We're convening at a critical time and the discussions will cover a myriad pressing issues."
Sessions will include the following:
- "Sense of the Markets: Outlook for the Global Capital Markets and Transactional Activity": A discussion of how seismic events, like the Brexit vote, will alter the dealmaking environment around the world.
- "Beyond the Election: Regulatory Outlook for Corporate America and Wall Street": A forum for an exchange of ideas about how the new administration and Congress might alter the legal and regulatory framework for mergers and acquisitions.
- "Private Equity: Industries for Global Growth Investors in 2017": Participants will identify the sectors that hold out the greatest prospects for gains over the next 12 months.
