All registered attendees will have access to the four forums, allowing you to build your network across alternative asset classes. Book now to access the entire Women in Private Markets Summit.

What can you expect at the Summit?

Hear from industry leaders
Learn how industry experts are actively addressing diversity within their own businesses and those they work with. Understand how investor allocations have changed, the effect of the rise of impact investing in alternatives, how the SPAC phenomenon will play out for private markets, and if fundraising will ever be the same again.

Build your cross-asset class network
Connect with industry participants across private equity, infrastructure, private debt and real estate. Network in-person at interactive workshops, networking breaks, evening drinks reception, roundtable discussions and invite-only breakfasts. Build lasting relationships and compare best practices with your peers.

Meet institutional investors
Hear from investors who are looking to increase their exposure to private markets. Benefit from our expansive global investor community who will be in attendance throughout the forum. Current investors include Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, CPPIB, EBRD, Greater Manchester Pension Fund, and Japan Post Bank.
