International Capital Flows: Strategic Investment for Sustainable Growth

Thursday, February 8, 2018 / 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Global capital markets closed 2017 with compressed spreads and surging stocks. This is leading the Federal Reserve and other central banks to consider a change in policy and interest rate hikes in reaction to a perceived strengthening global economy. But investors still remain split about the near-term outlook with high-levels of geopolitical risk juxtaposed to placid markets. This panel of experts will discuss some of the most pressing issues facing markets and where they see opportunity.

  • Is this the golden age of private equity with debt markets that are providing favorable rates and high levels of debt?
  • How are credit investors navigating the declining use of covenants?
  • What credit structures and portions of the capital structure are offering the best risk/return profiles for investors?
