Masterclass in Private Equity

Five days of intensive training

12 - 16 April 2021

Central London

This intensive five day course is an extremely practical "how to" programme which focuses on all aspects of private equity. This course will show you how to respond to the many developments and new challenges in this sector. It is presented from both investor and funding perspectives by a trainer with decades of industry experience, who has worked on PE transactions at all stages in the financing lifecycle, from start-up through to exit.

After the course, you will have a framework you can use to:

  • Question the potential of PE opportunities at all stages in the financing lifecycle using a structured commercial due diligence procedure
  • Drill down and answer the relevant questions about how, when and why value may be created from any type of prospective PE opportunity, i.e. the potential value drivers of the investment and their sensitivity
  • Place the exit option clearly into perspective in terms of potential directions to take to create most value and how to challenge potential outcomes

The course met my expectations. My understanding at the start was poor but excellent at the finish. The course leader was very good. The case studies were very valuable
