FULL-DAY CONFERENCE

Thursday, February 16, 2012

8:00 am – 5:00 pm
New York City 

Designed to Meet the Needs of GPs, LPs, & Managers of Buyout, Growth Equity, Mezzanine, & Lending Funds, as Well as Independent Sponsors, Operating Partners, Portfolio Company Managers, and the Bankers, Lawyers, Accountants,

& Other Advisors Who Support Them

Faculty | Schedule | Registration | Location | Sponsorship | Audio Package |

More and more wealthy families and individuals -- together with the managers who help oversee their assets -- are agreeing to invest in the funds and deals of middle-market private equity firms.

 

With current economic and political uncertainties, these valued yet often elusive LPs are more concerned than ever about risk management.  Many are taking a defensive posture with their investments, and they feel threatened by increasing government regulation and tighter compliance standards, not to mention the potential for media attention.

 

So more than ever before, getting in the door takes a very focused strategy that addresses the challenges these asset holders face.  There are right and wrong ways to approach this marketplace, and specific points you must make in your presentations to build confidence and foster relationships.

 

          You’ll find just how to reach these investors at The Capital Roundtable’s full-day

          encore conference, with all-NEW content, on Thursday, February 16, 2012 in

          New York.

 

          And we’re delighted to welcome Jeffery F. Moy, Head of Private Equity for New

          York-based Rockefeller Financial to chair this encore conference.

 

Rockefeller Financial is a global investment and wealth management firm providing sophisticated solutions to wealthy individuals, families, family offices, foundations, endowments and other institutions.  The firm’s history dates back to 1882 when John D. Rockefeller established one of the world’s first family offices.  The firm was formally incorporated in 1979 and became a SEC registered investment adviser in 1980, at which point it began servicing a broader clientele.  Rockefeller Financial provides access to best-in-class solutions and comprehensive services through four business groups -- Rockefeller Wealth Advisors, Rockefeller Asset Management, Rockefeller Capital Partners, and Rockit® Solutions. 

 

Rockefeller was one of the leaders in private equity funds through its initial formation of Venrock and AEA Investors more than four decades ago.  Now through Rockefeller Capital Partners, the firm demonstrates expertise across the private equity landscape -- venture capital, growth equity, buyouts, distressed, secondaries, cleantech, etc.  The firm has a highly selective approach to private equity and facilitates access to funds that are typically closed to new LPs.

 

With its need to protect the confidentiality of individuals’ wealth, the family office marketplace can be difficult to break into.  Both single-family and multi-family offices operate very differently from institutions.  They have no disclosure regulations and are not saddled with asset and liability matching requirements.

 

And the funds that family offices control are greater than many PE firms realize.  Investable assets can range from $25 million to $25 billion.

 

This makes family offices a more consistent source of capital than the institutional marketplace. Endowments and foundations have been hurt by the liquidity crunch, and must often make decisions based solely on time frames and return parameters.  In comparison, family office managers have ever‑evolving needs, so any time is a good time to make their acquaintance.

 

          If you want to get a 360˚ insider’s view of this highly desirable marketplace, make

          plans now to join us.

 

          Plus there’s no searching required to take advantage of our Early Bird Discount.  

          Simply sign up before January 6 for this conference, and you will automatically

          receive special savings of $400!

 

Jeff Moy will be sharing his extensive knowledge and key relationships with all conference attendees.  He brings more than 20 years of investment management experience to the dais.

 

Prior to joining Rockefeller Financial, Jeff was a Senior Managing Director at Liberty Mutual Investment Advisors LLC, where he spearheaded the firm's alternative markets portfolio.  A Chartered Financial Analyst, Chartered Market Technician, and Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst, Jeff received a MS in Management from MIT’s Sloan School of Management and a BS in Business Administration from Boston University.

 

20 Family Office Specialists Reveal Their Strategies & Tactics

 

Along with Jeff, we’ll have 20 knowledgeable speakers taking part in four brand-new panel presentations.  You’ll hear from prominent family office managers, GPs working with family office managers and wealthy individuals, plus PE industry specialists in making fundraising presentations, preparing pitch books, negotiating GP/LP agreements and arranging deal structures.

 

At our conference, we’ll explore best practices in developing and cultivating the relationships that are all-important.  It takes time to earn the confidence and trust of family office managers, and you need to present yourself in a memorable, meaningful way.  Quite often, individual family offices have ties to a particular industry due to heritage issues or philanthropic matters; your task is to identify and capitalize on these leanings.

 

We’ll cover the new role of family office consultants -- gatekeepers whose mission is to provide a first line evaluation of potential GPs.  It’s a boon to pass muster with these consultants and earn a place on their approved list -- many serve multiple family office clients and can expand your opportunities.

 

And we’ll explain how placement agents can help you get introduced to family offices you may not be able to reach on your own.  You’ll hear the best approaches to finding a good placement agent -- the questions to ask, the references to check and the fees to expect.

 

We’ll also discuss what you need to know about finding capital overseas.  While family offices in Europe and Asia have traditionally sought out larger established PE firms, the pendulum is swinging as the world grows smaller.

 

Register now to gain insight into these and other frequently-asked questions --

 

  • Are family offices and wealthy individuals becoming more or less committed to private equity?
  • What are some of the main challenges that affect fundraising from family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • How can you gain the trust of family offices that are overly cautious about risk and/or sticklers for transparency?
  • How does the flexibility of family offices compare to that of larger institutional investors?
  • What are the best ways for GPs to locate and approach family office managers -- cold calls, personal introductions, or both?
  • What are the middle-market sectors that seem to be most attractive to family offices and wealthy individuals today?
  • What are the key differences between domestic family offices and those based in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America?
  • What are today’s best practices for making presentations to family offices?  What common mistakes should GPs avoid?
  • What are the pros and cons of using placement agents for reaching family offices and wealthy individuals?
  • What key practices should GPs follow in meeting family offices’ needs for confidentiality?
  • And much, much more.

 

Meet The People Who Can Expand Your Family Circle.

 

This conference is one of the very few places where you can network with hard-to-find family office professionals.  We’ve built ample time into the agenda, including session breaks and an open lunch, where you can make contacts and connections with both your peers and our featured speakers.

 

You should attend this conference if you are a --

  • Emerging manager looking to raise your first fund.
  • Experienced GP ready to cast your net wider for potential investors.
  • GP wanting to learn how best to pitch to family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Family office manager seeking benchmarks to gauge your performance.
  • Fund of funds manager who wants to maximize upcoming opportunities.
  • Attorney or advisor involved with family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Placement agent seeking new sources for closing young funds.
  • PE communications professional involved with presentations to family offices and wealthy individuals.
  • Executive search professional recruiting for the PE industry.

 

          Remember, register with our Early Bird Rate by January 6, 2012, and you’ll save

          $400 off our standard fee!  Please make your reservation now so you’re not

          disappointed. We’ll be looking forward to greeting you.
