EMPEA’s EM PE Masterclass: DFI Seminar Contact Details

EMPEA’s inaugural EM PE Fundraising Masterclass, held on 17 May in Washington, D.C, was presented at the 14th Annual Global Private Equity Conference with support from Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and MVision Private Equity Advisers. The success of this new addition to EMPEA's education platform was due to your participation, Thanks in part to our distinguished faculty of experienced EM PE practitioners who led four thought-provoking sessions and the feedback of those who attended, the EM PE Fundraising Masterclass has been added to EMPEA's suite of educational programming.

Our Development Finance Institution (DFI) Seminar panelists took the stage to participate in an extended seminar and discussion on the theme Back to Basics and Differentiating in a World of Qualified Proposals. This dynamic discussion, and the robust question and answer portion of the event, made it clear that our audience of fund managers wants to know more about doing business and building relationships with these key investment partners. In an effort to provide additional value and information on liaising with DFI partners, we have compiled the contact list below for our DFI Seminar participants, who have agreed to share their contact details in order to continue to foster the education and dialog begun at the Masterclass.

EMPEA's next EM PE Fundraising Masterclass will be held 25 October 2012 in London, in conjunction with EMPEA's fall events with FT Business.
