Mapping out opportunities in the Italian private equity market

We are delighted to announce that the next 7th annual unquote" Italia Private Equity Forum will take place on 12th November 2013 in Milan at the Four Seasons Hotel.

The annual unquote'' Italia Forum will bring together leading senior private equity professionals to discuss the future landscape of private equity in Italy and Southern Europe. Attendees will explore investment opportunities and strategies whilst finding out about current LPs expectations and investment commitment readiness. They will also assess the relationship between public and private funds and review new trends in deal structures. A number of case studies will tackle fundraising strategies and examine the key factors behind a successful exit.

Year on year, unquote" Italia provides an excellent opportunity for networking and best practice sharing among the private equity market champions.
