Raising Private Capital in a COVID-19 World: Outlook for PE and VC

Even before the global health emergency was declared in late January, private equity funding had started to cool and investors were already losing their appetite for money-losing companies.

Then, the global outbreak shocked the world leaving investors trying to analyze the short and long-term impacts across industries and the capital markets. All these issues relate to investment decision making, assessments of market movements and the viability of market sectors.

This master class will provide an overview of how the Private Equity and Venture Capital funding are impacted by Covid-19, which the investment sector is more likely to experience more outflows and what we could learn from the SARS outbreak back in 2002 on the Asian private market funding.

Moreover, the lecture intends to offer insights on how investment professionals are all trying to predict the lasting effects of the crisis on markets and economies, and eventually on portfolio allocations.
