Armando D’Amico participated as guest speaker at the PEI Training Course “The Role of the Placement Agent” on 17 December.
International participants attended Armando’s lecture which focused on the role of the placement agent and in particular on investors’ selection criteria, how GPs can differentiate themselves in a challenging fundraising environment and the practical steps to prepare for a successful fundraising.
The three-day course covered a wide range of topics including:
- How placement agents work with GPs in helping them to find LPs to invest in their funds.
- Current views on areas of stage, sector and geographic focus
- How GPs can/should arrive at a USP for their funds to differentiate themselves from their competitors
- The fund raising cycle
