Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 17, 2007
Institutional investors, private equity, and venture capital investors should mark August 22nd on their calendars, when Equity Risk Partners and Ephor Group host a free webinar entitled ‘Risk Managements Role in Improving Portfolio Performance.’
Ephor Group’s Garry Meier and Equity Risk Partner’s Mike Goodwin will present ‘Risk Managements Role in Improving Portfolio Performance.’ This interactive presentation will challenge investors’ notions about insurable and uninsurable risk in their portfolio companies – as well as share tools and techniques for increasing returns from an operational and insurable risk perspective.
Because of unstable credit markets and other external factors (globalization for instance) multiple arbitrage is no longer a strategy for investment returns. However, managing a portfolio’s total risk management can increase returns.
This live webinar shares case studies, real world examples, and a proven framework: Total Portfolio Risk Management.
The hour-long live webinar will take place Wednesday August 22nd at 12:00 pm EASTERN and is intended for senior investment partners of private equity, venture and institutional managers and details strategies, tactics, and examples of increasing equity returns.
This webinar examines critical topics such as:
- Improving portfolio IRR through less risk
- Identifying and managing both "Insurable and Uninsurable" risks
- Risk management dashboard and indicators
"Because valuation arbitrage is less certain today improving EBITDA by mitigating insurable and uninsurable risk is a requirement for venture capital and private equity portfolio managers, says Garry Meier, Ephor Group founder.
The agenda for the live Risk Management webinar includes:
1. Holistic approach to risk – stopping the slinky effect of good year/bad year investment returns
2. Tools and techniques to improve the efficiency, structure, and investment returns of portfolio company investments
3. Reality of today’s equity value equation and how-to increase EBITDA returns
4. Role and value of Total Portfolio Risk Management (TPRM)
5. Model of TPRM value creation for GP
6. Total Portfolio Risk Management dashboard
