Key Takeaways From 2023 McGuireWoods Emerging Manager Conference

McGuireWoods recently held its Emerging Manager Conference at The Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, attracting over 725 emerging managers and limited partners with various investment strategies. This two-day event is the centerpiece of the McGuireWoods Emerging Manager Program. McGuireWoods’ Jon FingerTom Zahn and Abdul-Rahman Lediju review key takeaways from the conference in an article published by PE Hub:

  • Investing with emerging managers is one of the best places for an investor right now.

  • Consider: You may be a great investor, but can you build your business as an emerging manager?

  • Endowments are increasingly active and core investors with emerging managers.

  • Transitory was a controversial term recently; now, it is often used to describe certain emerging managers who take an independent sponsor approach to navigating uncertain fundraises.

  • Build it before you need it. Prepare the necessary framework as early as practical to ensure a successful fundraise.
