Attracting the elite within the private equity industry
We are excited to be back together in-person this July hosting the longest running, dedicated private equity conference in the investment industry - the Pension Bridge Private Equity Exclusive.
Now in its 16th year, the conference is returning this summer to Chicago at The Loews Chicago Hotel. You’ll experience the same high quality networking and educational opportunities in a brand new venue, with a refreshed look and feel. Gather with innovative thought leaders from North America’s largest LPs and GPs, all coming together for two days of in-depth knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer collaboration.
Hot topics, sparking vibrant conversations
There has never been a better time for the industry to come together to discuss its opportunities and challenges. Private equity is the darling of the investment community, with assets under management growing more strongly than ever. But this very success is creating its own issues with the huge weight of dry power driving deal prices and making the competition for the best deals tighter. At the same time, new deal structures are extending the life of investments and providing investors new ways to access and derive value from this market.
Where business gets done
Over nearly two decades, Pension Bridge has built an enviable reputation for hosting some of the most important and valuable conferences for the institutional asset management community.
We regularly attract super-star LPs, with more than $6trn of asset in the room.
LPs come to meet new and existing managers and ultimately to make new private equity allocations; Consultants aim to improve their understanding of the sector and to develop their networks; and GPs come to build relationships with investors and consultants, and of course to win business.
A conference like no other
Attendance at Pension Bridge is sought after. This is the event where GPs can make game-changing deals by connecting with prospective and current clients.
To allow for this, we have, and always will, maintain a strict attendance structure. Unique to the industry, we aim to deliver a 1:1 ratio of investors and consultants to manager attendees. This ensures there is an optimal environment to foster connections – investors don’t feel overwhelmed, and you have the greatest visibility to forge relationships.
This year we expect more than 200 fee-earning and non fee-earning LPs to attend, with a limit of only 90 GP firms.
Notice Anything Different?
With the return to physical conference, comes a new look for Pension Bridge. In November 2021, Pension Bridge united with the rest of its sister brands (Falk Marques Group, HFM, Fund Intelligence and many others) to form one new global brand - With Intelligence. But be rest assured, they are still the same high-quality, content-rich events you have known and loved for the past 17 years. If anything, we are harnessing a new power.
