The Argentum Centre For Private Equity Symposium 2012
The Argentum Centre for Private Equity at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) is pleased to invite interested academics and practitioners to the Centre's conference on Private Equity on September 6th 2012, at the Solstrand Hotel in Bergen.
The Symposium will be organized in association with Argentum and will directly follow the Argentum Conference 2012 to be held the day before at the same venue.
SYMPOSIUM FOCUS: This symposium is motivated by the unprecedented boom and bust in private equity and venture capital investments in the last few years. 2010 and 2011 saw unprecedented macroeconomic uncertainty in Europe and the US. At the same time, institutional investors are reassessing their exposure to the industry while the rapid growth and globalization of the industry has worried policy makers and raised demands for increased regulation and disclosure of this sector.
TOPICS: Topics may include, but are not restricted to:
- Return Measurement for PE Investments

- Regulation of VC/PE Investments
We plan on having five presentations of recent research papers, with a discussant for each paper.
