Goodwin Procter Sponsors Seminar on Private Equity Investing in Banks

With the capital markets in a state of transition and banks, in particular, looking for new sources of capital, our latest M&A event couldn't come at a more opportune time.  Held in New York on Oct. 2, Private Equity Investing in Banks: Opportunities in a Perfect Storm will examine the latest trends in this sector of the M&A market as regulators consider ways to alleviate the burden of private equity investing in banks. Several private equity funds are being raised to invest in the banking industry, while a growing number of banking institutions are considering acquisitions, selling minority stakes or putting themselves up for sale.

Join some of the biggest names in the industry on October 2, at the Le Parker Meridien in New York City and hear from experts from both the M&A and banking communities. Anchored by keynote speaker Randy Quarles, Managing Director with The Carlyle Group, and former Under Secretary of the Treasury, our panel will provide insights into this evolving sector. You will have ample opportunities for both learning and networking with bank executives, private equity firms, hedge funds and investment banks.
