DACH Private Equity Forum

The following content contains information on the recent 2014 DACH Private Equity Forum. 2015 updates coming soon.

unquote" is pleased to announce the annual DACH Private Equity Forum returns to Munich on 7 October 2014!

Now in its 9th year, this event is recognised as a must attend bringing together LPs, GPs and the wider industry to debate and discuss developments in private equity investments and exits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.


The signs are very positive for the DACH private equity market as 2014 got off to a good start with Germany alone recording a total buyout value of €2.8bn in quarter 1. Though the volume of deals is down, the values are higher and activity in the secondary market continues to be buoyant. What is the outlook for the next 12 months? How can private equity investors gain better access to the Mittelstand? Will deals continue to dominate in the consumer goods and retail, pharmaceutical and engineering sectors or will new sectors emerge? Moreover, how will private equity investors compete and collaborate with the increasing number of strategic buyers in the DACH market?

Join us in Munich on 7 October where you will benefit from a combination of keynote addresses and lively panel debates featuring leading speakers from across the DACH private equity industry.
