Potential topics include, but are not limited to, risk and performance measurement of private market funds; the economics of private impact investment funds; private fund manager incentives; institutional investor asset allocation; entrepreneurial finance; alternative private investing structures; private equity, private debt and private real asset investing; VC contracting; ESG, TBL, and impact exposures of private market funds; private market exits and alternative routes to liquidity; etc.
