Risk management is becoming increasingly critical for professionals in private equity as an asset class. With exit visibility low and investors stressing on capital protection, effective risk management for portfolio firms and for new investments has taken centre stage in investment decisions.


Still tentative economic recovery and spectre of new regulations will only step up the emphasis on managing risk for private equity fund managers, going forward.


In this regard VCCircle Training is organising a one day workshop to help delegates identify, measure and mitigate all types of risk concerned with private equity investments. The program will offer practical tools coupled with contemporary knowledge modules and anecdotal experience of the experts.


Well-respected experts in their fields will cover various topics in the workshop, providing delegates with multiple perspectives and immeasurable and highly practical experience in risk management. The attendees will be able to take away precise best practises and scientific monitoring knowhow.


Precisely understanding how the downside affects your business should make your organisation’s upside all the more rewarding.
