Just a few years ago, independent sponsors — then known as “fundless” sponsors — were a relatively new phenomenon. Now, the category of independent sponsors has matured into an industry of its own, and 2013 looks to be a banner year for this fast-growing sector.

  • hear why - for many investors - the pendulum is swinging to direct investing in a known company, and away from funding a blind pool that has a management fee
  • network with your peers and counterparts to discuss the pluses and minuses of today’s independent sponsor arena
  • find out how independent sponsors are successfully building networks for deal flow and for sources of capital
  • understand the issues facing all four parties in an independent deal – the seller, the independent sponsor, the capital source, and the management team
  • if you’re a relatively new independent sponsor, gain insight on how to persuade sellers that you can make a deal happen
  • if you’re a capital source, gain insight on how to ensure that an independent sponsor is more than just an intermediary seeking a bigger fee.
