Destined to Outperform

Under the theme “Destined to Outperform”, IPEM Paris is reconvening in the French capital to discuss whether the claim of the private capital industry over the past few decades – that private markets are destined to outperform other asset classes – is still holding true. The LP-only sessions, conferences, and summits at IPEM Paris 2023 will interrogate the investment strategies of each private asset class to redefine the meaning of discipline, value, and performance in the following market cycle.

This event is a great opportunity to meet with our private equity experts to learn more about Ardian’s activities. Join us and dive into three days of meetings, conferences and networking.

2:15 pm: "Adapting for a new macroeconomic reality" Fireside chat with Dominique Senequier, President of Ardian.

As the macro-economic, social and geopolitical Tectonic plates are shifting, after a period of stability and growth, how will investors and investments be impacted? How can managers adapt in this fast-changing world?

2:00 pm: "Reimagining public-private collaboration to realise the energy transition" with Laurent Fayollas, Ardian Global Infrastructure Deputy Head and President of Hy24.

In order to decarbonise, the public sector must mobilise vast sums of capital at scale into renewable energy solutions. Private capital funds are one channel through which political ambition can achieve real results on the ground. But what challenges do municipalities and public bodies face? How can private funds partner with public bodies to deploy capital where it’s needed most? With the climate emergency, does the industry have time to reimagine the the public-private partnership?


3:00 pm - 3:30 pm CET: Show me some DPI! New exit routes and liquidity options, with Thibault Basquin, Executive Board Member of Ardian US LLC and Co-Head of Buyout at Ardian.

The sluggish exit environment has put downward pressure on LP distributions, as GPs take time to re-evaluate exit strategy. As a result, LPs are expecting significantly lower distributions heading into the next year. What does this mean for liquidity, and what options are available?
