Swedish Institute for Financial Research Conference on "The Economics of the Private Equity Market "
This conference is motivated by the unprecedented activity in private equity inthe last few years. 2006 has seen records set for the amounts of aggregate fundraising and investment activity, as well as for the size of the individual funds raised and individual buyout transactions undertaken. These investments are having a profound effect in spurring entrepreneurship and restructuring in many industries worldwide. At the same time, the rapid growth and globalizationof the industry has worried policy makers and raised demands for increased regulation and disclosure of this sector. Still, public debate has largely ignored the significant amount of academic research evidence that does exist on private equity fundsand their impact on the economy. The purpose of this conference is to bring this body of research to the attention of policy makers and practitioners, and to showcase the academic research frontier in private equity.
