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 event couldn't come at a more opportune time. To be held in New York on Oct. 2 at the Parker Meridien Hotel, 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 and hear from experts from both the M&A and banking communities. The conference will be anchored by keynote speaker Randy Quarles, Managing Director with The Carlyle Group, and former Under Secretary of the Treasury, followed by a panel discussing this evolving sector moderated by Goodwin Procter Private Equity Partner Hovey Kemp and featuring Michael McClintock, Managing Director at Friedman Billings Ramsay, Alison Davis, Managing Partner at Belvedere Capital and Robin Maxwell, Financial Services Partner at Goodwin Procter.
