Private Equity Laid Bare

BrainBite Evening Lecture: 15 November 2017

BrainBites - AIF Evening Lecture Series

Everything you always wanted to know about private equity but were afraid to ask! Join us for this session of BrainBites and take a deep dive into one of today's hottest industries.

In this BrainBite, Ludovic Phalippou will talk about his new myth debunking book 'Private Equity Laid Bare'. The audience will get an insider's view - from an outsider - into a secretive industry. Ludovic believes in making things as simple as possible and boiling everything down to the essence - he will use simplified examples and real-life situations to explain the jargon and mechanics of private equity.
