Course Summary

Alternative assets (AA) have attracted a considerable amount of attention and enthusiasm for their performance, diversification effects, and growth of assets under management (AUM). Among various alternative asset classes, traditional leveraged private equity and mezzanine finance share numerous characteristics – illiquidity, long-term horizons, and potential for high levels of returns. Infrastructure private equity and real asset investment add diversification plus inflation protection. All these areas can utilise leverage in acquiring the underlying assets.

This school provides delegates with a comprehensive understanding of these "illiquid" alternative asset classes. It will:

  • Examine the role of traditional PE, real assets and infrastructure PE, private mezzanine financing (PMF), and growth equity in the portfolio
  • Analyse representative transactions and assess the attractiveness of potential transactions in different transaction contexts
  • Illustrate common types and identify classic sources of traditional PE, real assets, infrastructure, PMF and growth equity transactions
  • Examine entry valuation methodologies, including forecasting and modelling
  • Demonstrate how to structure and fund deals
  • Demonstrate how to generate returns through opportunistic entry, improved fundamental performance post-acquisition, use of leverage and performance incentives, and timely exit
  • Profile sources of financing for transactions of different asset classes
  • Examine funds flows and asset ownership changes associated with different products
  • Demonstrate classic post-acquisition operational improvements, such as more disciplined capital spending, reductions in working capital, and performance-related compensation
  • Profile key due diligence issues, including HR due diligence
  • Review exist alternatives, including leveraged recaps, IPOs, and trade sales to a strategic buyers

Attendees will see private equity from the standpoint of both:

  • The buy-side, i.e. investors with capital looking to commit it to uncorrelated, historically higher-return, but illiquid investments
  • The sell-side, i.e. intermediaries assisting in the structuring and financing of private equity transactions


The course will include the analysis of several private equity deals and leveraged buyouts, including a series of Asian transactions. A Socratic approach, with active participation and exercises, will be used.
