Get Ready for Distressed Investing
Take a deeper dive into distressed investing. Investors expect the credit cycle to turn; the big question is when. Notably, some of the largest funds have started raising capital for distressed deals in Europe. There is increased competition among funds for a limited number of distressed opportunities, including property, retail and casual dining, construction, financial services, auto parts and car manufacturers.

Learn which sectors are most likely to attract investors and what their expectations are for returns. Consider the risks in each industry, as well as the possible downside, when other factors come into play.

Bring your questions and then share your perspectives with colleagues and peers, as you network over drinks following the discussion.

Spaces are limited so please register promptly.
