Day two - 24 September

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019


12:40 PM Panel Debate: Is the risk-return of first time funds and spin-outs justifiable in comparison with high performing established funds?

  • Yes: First time funds often outperform, delivering higher returns than traditional funds - Hans van Swaay, Partner, Lyrique Sàrl & Stefan Lehotkay, Partner, CLEARSIGHT Investments 
  • Yes: First time funds offer strong performance: diversification and specialists skills  over more established managers - Mark Nicolson, Senior Investment Director, Aberdeen Standard Investments Private Equity 
  • No: The risk is too high; they often fail to meet fundraising targets and the risk of abandon is much greater - Philip Rattle, Managing Partner, August Equity 
  • No: we are drawn to macro-opportunities and the prospect of fruitful returns at any stage - Franҫois Rowell, Director, UBS Investment Bank
