Our speakers

Leadership in Extraordinary Times

Private equity has had a significant impact on organisations during the pandemic and not always in a positive way.

The Good: Private equity helped many companies to respond to the events of the last year and thrive.

The Bad : The high levels of debt incurred by private equity hurt many PE-controlled companies during the pandemic, resulting in some high-profile bankruptcies.

The Ugly: Other highly-indebted PE-controlled companies were rescued by the taxpayer, leading to resentment and a sense of capitalism for the rich and communism for the poor.

Vindi Banga and Ludovic Phalippou will discuss these differing views and separate the truth from the fiction.
