Date Friday 23 November 2018 Time 9:00am - 4:00pm Key Contacts Location Saïd Business School,
Park End Street,
Oxford OX1 1HP

MJ Hudson, LDS Partners, Luxembourg, and the Private Equity Institute, Saïd Business School, Oxford, will host the annual Risk Management Symposium on 22-23 November 2018 at Saïd Business School, Oxford.  Eamon Devlin will open the symposium with a talk on, Hostages to fortune: the problem of LPs and GPs being misaligned.

Private equity’s illiquid nature means it is often perceived as one of the riskiest asset classes. However, it is precisely the associated risk premium that attracts institutional investors to private equity. Risk management in this area is still predominantly associated with risk avoidance, whereas harvesting the illiquidity risk premium requires specific management techniques for seeking risks in order to achieve an attractive risk/return relationship for private equity portfolios. The symposium aims to advance private equity portfolio management practices and build a community of private equity practitioners and academics with a view to extending both the theoretical understanding and practical management of the issues raised.

The symposium is a unique opportunity for major industry stakeholders and academics to discuss the current state of risk management in private equity, and plans for the future.
