Ludovic Phalippou hosted the inaugural conference.
The objective of the conference was to advance academic research with a view to supporting change by industry participants as well as policy makers. The overarching goal was to reimagine private markets to achieve fair return on invested capital, but also serve the greater public interest as well as the stakeholders of private markets by looking beyond the portfolio companies and examining the net effect and impact on larger public interest considerations.
The event brought together multi-disciplinary experts, academics and practitioners to exchange their experience and their research in building tomorrow's financial markets.
The conference involved 80 in-person delegates and over 500 virtual attendees, including policy makers, investors and representatives of corporations, academics and researchers, foundations, and more.
