The Falk Marques Group, founder and producer of the Women’s Alternative Investment Summit and Women’s Private Equity Summit, is excited to announce its partnership with Family Office Review, the news and information leader for the high net worth/family office/wealth management sectors. The two organizations have teamed up to produce a by-invitation-only workshop for single family offices – The Family Office: Finding Success in Private Equity – as part of the 2013 Women’s Alternative Investment Summit, November 7 and 8, The Pierre, New York City.
The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, November 7, from 2:30 – 5:00 p.m. It features a notable group of panelists, including: Candice Beaumont, Managing Director, L Investments; Wendy Craft, Executive Vice President, General Counsel, Fulcrum Equities; Sarah Overbay, Director of Principal Investments, Marron Capital; Beth Rahn, Senior Associate, McNally Capital; Jennifer W. Steans, President, Financial Investments Corporation; and Diane Sterthous, Portfolio Manager, Private Assets, Glenmede.
“We are very excited to be partnering with such a respected news and information leader for single family offices. A growing number of family offices are seeing private equity as an investment area worth pursuing and they are exploring investing directly in funds or even directly in deals,” said Beth Falk, president, Falk Marques Group; founder and managing director, Women’s Alternative Investment and Women’s Private Equity Summits. “With this in mind, we have developed a specialized workshop that will provide single family offices with a rare glimpse into the private equity playing field and the opportunity to discover how leading institutional investors and general partners are deploying capital.”
The content-rich workshop will provide single family office attendees with 3 key takeaways:
- Clarity into how other families are approaching private equity;
- Honest feedback from experienced investors on where they see direct investing opportunities and where they see challenges; and
- Candid insight on how our expert panelists approach risk and the steps they take before investing in funds or doing deals.
“The Falk Marques Group and the Women’s Alternative Investment Summit have an outstanding reputation for bringing together the most senior-level women in private equity and alternative investments in an atmosphere that fosters honest conversation, powerful networking and the opportunity to do deals. We felt the Summit was the perfect environment for our single family offices to grow their knowledge of private equity investing and hot investment sectors,” said Steffi Claiden, founder and CEO, Family Office Review/Family Office Capital Network.
Family office representatives are being offered the special rate of $890 to attend both the workshop on Thursday, November 7, and the Summit on Friday, November 8.
