Finally, I would like to acknowledge the contribution made by the Finance Club and congratulate them for taking this initiative," said the institute's dean, M Rammohan Rao, in his message.

Do limited partners see a significant return from investing in the funds raised in the last 1-2 years? How difficult will it be for firms to invest their sizable funds, especially with debt becoming costlier and opportunities drying up due to perceived economic slowdown? Will PE firms be able to overcome the resistance faced from closely held family businesses?

These are some of the other questions that the conference plans to answer.
