Our 2007 Private Equity Roundtable offers perspectives from industry leaders on the compelling issues facing private equity market participants today, including:

  • What do last year's highs and lows indicate for 2007?
  • Do robust fundraising and favorable debt terms point to another year of brisk growth for private equity, or are we heading for a correction?
  • What does recent public stockholder activism mean for going-private LBO transactions?
  • Where are mega-funds heading and what opportunities will the stratification of the PE fund market offer those who play in the middle market?
