In the past, GPs had a broad investment mandate and were mainly executing buyout transactions. At the same time, most LPs used to invest in alternative assets pursuing a straight-ahead private equity allocation.

Recently, GP’s fierce competition has increased price multiples, and LPs have been looking to plug specific holes in their alternative asset allocation, funnelling more capital to GPs that offer something different.

Therefore, classic GPs buyout firms have been developing a better playbook to differentiate themselves in the fundraising and investment stage and to leverage these specialized capabilities to add value aggressively. This situation has given rise to innovative new fund types such as hyper focused and long-hold.

We will explore these new investment approaches and understand the opportunities and challenges of implementing these innovative strategies.

We will be joined by Timothy Franks from KKR, James Kim from Apollo, and Joseph Schull from Corten Capital.

Timothy Franks is a Partner of KKR. He joined KKR in 2017 and leads the development of KKR’s activities in the UK & Ireland within the Private Equity platform, the Consumer industry team in EMEA, and the longer-term Core investment strategy of the firm in Europe.

James Kim is a Managing Director and European Co-Head of Illiquid Opportunistic Credit. He is based in London and has invested in European corporate credit across various different strategies since joining the firm in 2010.

Joseph Schull is the Managing Partner of Corten Capital. Having joined Warburg Pincus in 1998, Joseph led the firm’s TMT group in Europe as well as its investment activities in Emerging Europe. He has led growth and buyout investments in B2B software and technology-enabled services, information services, cable broadband services and digital media.

Session will be moderated by Christian Dummett, Executive Director & Head of LBS Career Centre.
