The program continued with panel sessions, keynote addresses and interviews examining a wide array of topics from mitigating risk in an emerging markets portfolio to the economic benefits of impact investing.

The room was abuzz with a wide range of perspectives on private equity opportunities in the high growth markets of Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Emerging Europe. Portfolio company CEOs shared their perspectives on the value of private equity partnerships—“private equity pushes you to constantly up the ante,” posited one CEO. In the day’s afternoon keynote address, Rachel Ziemba, Director of EEMEA and Global Macroeconomics at Roubini Global Economics, shared a more macro view of the Eurozone crisis and its effects on emerging markets private equity.
