The New Deal Masters - Family Offices as PE Investors

In the past few years there has been a rise of family-office-backed PE funds.  Whether looking for ways to align their business expertise with their investments or interested in long-term “patient capital,” these firms have the same desire – to find investments.

Join us for an in-depth discussion with a panel of family office-backed PE professionals who will share some insights into how they are structured, what they’re looking for in terms of investments, when and how to share deals with them.
