Date & Time
Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 2:00 PM - 2:45 PM
Theresa Shutt Robert Hetu

With increasingly fierce competition for assets and faced with volatile markets, investors are forced to find new ways to distinguish themselves and perform. In recent years, CDPQ has ramped up investments in less-liquid portfolios, including in private equity. But a related class has also been at the centre of CDPQ’s strategy: private debt – a sector that should reach $1 trillion globally by next year. 

• The relationship between private equity and private debt
• How to take advantage of private financing
• Which countries offer the most opportunities
• And how to innovate in markets segments considered more traditional
