Foley proudly sponsored the annual Private Equity San Francisco Forum, which has been developed as an education-focused, two-day event for allocators and asset managers. This event was meant to facilitate the dissemination of actionable investor content, coupled with supporting the continued development of the private equity investment industry along the West Coast.
It offered exclusive access to the leading minds throughout the private equity investment industry who provided the latest and greatest information and insight on the future of private equity, private debt, technology, infrastructure, allocation plans, and real asset investing.
As part of the forum, Louis Lehot moderated the panel Middle Market Outlook. With some of the highest deal values on record and plenty of dry powder chasing deals, competition has ramped up as mid-market firms seek out the most attractive targets. This means managers must get in front of deals quickly and be selective about the targets they want to pursue. How are GPs coping with the increased pressure caused by this dealmaking frenzy? The outlook is also brighter for LPs targeting the mid-market, with investor appetite on the up. How are LPs adding pressure and scrutiny on factors such as ESG, and will there be a continued appetite for Emerging Managers throughout 2023?
