The 2013 AIC promises to provide a dynamic forum for education and networking between leading luminaries from the hedge fund and private equity industries and the brightest students -- from undergraduates to PhD candidates -- who travel from as far afield as China and California to attend the Conference. Keynote speakers include Stephen Pagliuca of Bain Capital, Hardy McLain of CVC Capital Partners, Randall Dillard of Liongate Capital Management, Scott Minerd of Guggenheim Partners, Alain Carrier of CPP Investment Board, Graham Elton of Bain & Company and Jim O’Neill of Goldman Sachs.
Jointly organised by the LSE SU Alternative Investments Society and the LSE Financial Markets Group, the AIC combines the academic excellence of its namesake institution -- the LSE -- with the professionalism and prestige of the attending industry professionals and student delegates.
Competition for a seat at the Conference is fierce. In 2012, we received 4580 applications for 350 seats and we expect even higher application figures for the 2013 Conference.
It is our hope that you will emerge from this unique two-day Conference with an understanding of and an excitement about the hedge fund and private equity industries. We hope to offer an exceptional educational and networking experience with the idea that -- as the next generation of business leaders -- this Conference can be a positive force in shaping your future career in this industry.
