Current markets have striking similarities to 2006-2007.  Despite cautionary signs that the economy is slowing, private equity funds have been raising at breakneck pace.  The market multiples of fund platform investments and add-on investments have been hitting highs.  How have those high flying 2007 vintage year funds fared 12 years on?  Can alternative investors time the market?  What does recent research show regarding results of different investment strategies? Do private equity managers manipulate their returns?   What strategies work best?  How to private equity investors incorporate their market insights into their investment commitments?  Tailor their due diligence?

Come join this panel discussion to answer these questions and more!
