Private Equity Conference Forecasts Impact of Political Changes on Industry

January 10, 2011

NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — In 2011, members of the new Republican-led Congress will take their seats to finalize the Dodd-Frank Act, usher in tax changes and possibly decide the future of healthcare reform. To assess the impact these changes will have on the private equity industry, Dow Jones will convene top investors, industry association leaders and Washington insiders for two days of in-depth discussions led by the editors of Private Equity Analyst and The Wall Street Journal.

The Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst Outlook conference (http://peaoutlook.dowjones.com) will be held Jan. 25-26, 2011, at the Grand Hyatt in New York.

At the conference, representatives from Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and WilmerHale will join the presidents of the Private Equity Growth Capital Council and the National Venture Capital Association in recommending steps private equity and venture capital firms can take to influence and adapt to regulatory changes. The panel will also identify the political moves firms should watch closely in the coming year.

Daniel Henninger, a long-time political columnist and The Wall Street Journal‘s deputy editor for the editorial page, will share his perspective on what the congressional turnover means for the business and financial communities.

Healthcare investors from Flexpoint Ford and New Enterprise Associates and the CEO of Avalere Health will also impart actionable insights on the effect of the midterm elections on healthcare reform, trends that are impacting healthcare products and services, and the investment environment in 2011.

Participants in the Private Equity Analyst Outlook conference will also hear industry leaders analyze investment and fund-raising opportunities around the world, the IPO market and more.
