About the Event
The German market for leveraged buyout (“LBO”) financing around acquisitions by financial investors has grown strongly in recent years and has undergone significant structural changes. While a few years ago large banks with their leveraged finance teams dominated the market, in recent years private credit funds have gained a market share of 60% in the German mid cap LBO market. In our opinion, this development is not yet sufficiently reflected in the curricula of universities – not all of you presumably have already had contact with private credit / private credit funds. We would like to build on this and invite you to discuss the topic of private credit with us and gain some initial insights. After a general introduction by us, the theory will be applied and deepened by you in a case study, before we finish the evening together with snacks and drinks. Are you interested? Apply below!
