TresVista Talk Webinar: Emerging Manager & the Pandemic: Considerations for Launching & Scaling and Investment Platform
12th Sep 2020
Asset managers have seen a major disruption since late March 2020 when the onset of the pandemic resulted in deal-making grinding to a near halt, combined with a rapidly changing capital raising environment as LPs adapt to the new normal. While more established GPs have the benefit of a track record, emerging managers present an interesting opportunity unencumbered by troubled assets and armed with a thirst to outperform. Join us in this discussion as we speak with a distinguished panel, comprising Pavel Chernyshov, Annette Rodriguez and Michael Kessler in a session moderated by Abilash Jaikumar, of emerging managers on their journey, how they have navigated through the pandemic situation so far, and how they are positioning themselves for success in a changing investment landscape.

The US Labor Dept. recently provided guidance that took an important step towards opening up the world of Private Equity investments to retail investors.

In this discussion with our panelists, Doug Keller, Jason Mulvihill, Lawrence Cagney, and moderated by Abilash Jaikumar, we aim to analyze the current situation for 401(k) plans to offer access to PE investments, the logistical and compliance challenges PE firms face in offering these investment opportunities, the potential for PE funds, and much more!
TresVista Talk Webinar: How will Fundraising in the Private Equity market evolve?
31st Aug 2020
The environment for fundraising in private equity has seen meaningful shifts that are being felt throughout the investment industry value chain. The current dislocation is likely to favor specific strategies and should create opportunities for well-established & cycle tested managers down the road. However, the near-term landscape for raising funds and deploying at both LP and GP levels is facing a rapid readjustment. In this discussion with our panelists, Warren Hibbert, Pradeep Ramamurthy & Greg Jania, and moderated by Abilash Jaikumar, we will aim to better understand how LPs are viewing allocations in this market, how remote working environments are impacting manager diligence, how GPs are distinguishing themselves in the fundraising process, and much more!
TresVista Talk Webinar: What Role will Secondaries Investors Play in this Cycle?
31st Aug 2020
The market for private equity secondaries experienced a record level of deal volume in 2019, and the strategy has seen great interest from LPs, both from an allocation standpoint, as well as an avenue for liquidity. Likewise, GPs have innovatively been leveraging the secondary markets through restructurings, as a portfolio management tool. Like most areas, the market for secondaries has been impacted by the global pandemic. In this edition of the TresVista Talk Webinar, we aim to get our distinguished panelists' views on how the secondaries market has evolved for LPs and GPs, what we should expect from secondary deal volume in 2020, the competitive outlook within secondaries, and much more!
