Professional Development Luncheon Seminar 'The Need for (and results from) an Evolving Approach to the Business of Private Equity'
June 5, 2013
Featuring keynote speaker, Newton Glassman, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, The Catalyst Group Inc
Media reports tell us this is a hard time for private equity fundraising, but Newton Glassman, Managing Partner of Canada’s top-performing private equity fund manager, argues that opportunities are plentiful for those with the right model for today’s markets.
Mr. Glassman and his partners at the Catalyst Capital Group have built a business based on ‘manufacturing’ risk-adjusted returns, thereby rejecting the ‘aggregator’ model so prevalent in private equity today. Catalyst is of the view that its approach not only serves private equity investors’ best interests but also is in the long-term best interests of private equity managers and the industry as a whole.
Join us to learn more about Catalyst’s philosophy – and how it adds up to a potent proposition for investors.
This event takes place in Toronto from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.
