About The Conference

Changing market forces, rising interest rates and shifting investor attributes desiring lower cost and risk structures have made the private equity marketplace highly competitive. Independent sponsors are providing unique opportunities for private equity and mezzanine debt investors who are looking to better align incentives with the standard private equity fund. However, they face many challenges around deal sourcing, compensation and governance and with new entrants in the sector, it is critical that they develop the right partnerships to ensure deal flow in all market cycles. iGlobal Forum’s 5th Independent Sponsor Summit, held on April 19th & 20th in New York, will bring together over 150 senior level capital providers and IS executives by combining high-level networking and one-to-one meetings, alongside in-depth content, so you can pick up the best strategies from industry experts, make valuable connections, and improve your odds in generating successful deals. The 5th Independent Sponsor Summit is a key platform to meet and network directly with leading industry professionals and decision-makers all under one roof such as: Independent Sponsors (Fundless Sponsors), Private Equity Firms, Family Offices, Mezzanine Lenders, Hedge Funds, Institutional Investors, HNWIs (High Net Worth Individuals) and M&A Intermediaries/Advisors.
