Transatlantic action

In November, Private Equity International hosted the 2004 European Private Equity Forum in New York, a conference focused on the opportunities across the Atlantic for US general partners. Specifically, speakers and panelists discussed the best strategies for fundraising among European LPs, establishing an office in Europe, and doing deals in Europe. Among the keynote speakers were Guy Hands of Terra Firma Capital Partners, Chris Masterson of Montagu Private Equity, Stephen Pagliuca of Bain Capital, Jens Bisgaard-Frantzen of ATP Private Equity Partners and David Hutchings of Cambridge Associates.

The event was sponsored by Brown Gobbons Lang & Co; Debevoise & Pl impton LLP; Deloitte; GE Commercial Finance; Mourant and SJ Berwin.
