BREAKFAST BRIEFING: Technology-as-a-Service

Tuesday 4th October 2022 - Carlton House Terrace, London

With the continued growth and competition in the PE industry, the need for GPs to reduce costs, increase their own operational efficiency whilst providing operational excellence to their investors has increased. Successful fund managers now have to operate more and larger funds, which means more clients, service providers and larger amounts of data.

This increases the pressure to use modern technology, as the amount of data and clients makes it difficult to work in an analogue environment. Embracing innovation in private markets is going to be key for GPs striving to create value and is therefore becoming central to the strategy of many stakeholders.

Join us for an informative Breakfast Briefing, where our expert panel will explore what the possibilities are for your firm to create operational excellence through digital transformation. The discussion will address pressing questions, such as: what functions lend themselves to being outsourced vs kept in-house? What should GPs be aware of when deciding to outsource? What are the key considerations when selecting an outsourcing partner? How should service providers work together with fund managers to assure quality is not compromised?
