CFA Society Boston with CAIA Association on Private Equity 

The meteoric rise of private equity AUM seemed unstoppable throughout the 2010s. Then COVID-19, inflation, SVB, and a rapid reversal in monetary policy happened in the window of a few years in the early 2020s. How do we balance these exogenous events with the secular trend of capital formation? Where do we go from here? Join Aaron Filbeck, CAIA, CFA, CFP®, CIPM, FDP, CAIA’s Managing Director and Head of UniFi by CAIA™ and Steve McCourt, co-CEO of Meketa, as they explore these topics and discuss the future of private equity in 2023 and beyond.
