As part of the lecture series,the students of the Magisterium had the honour of receiving Mr. Arthur Bureau. The latter is an alumni of the training (2008 promotion).
After several years of experience working as private equity analyst at Pechel Industries and afterthen, as a M&A analyst at Hottinguer Bank, he was hired by Bpifrance in 2011 as investment manager and, since 2015, portfolio manager.
The students benefited from Mr. Bureau's expertise in the Private Equity sector. His lecture, entitled "Introduction to private equity", addressed a number of topics. From the presentation of the various private equity businesses, to accurate examples of investments and the explanation of the economic model of a private equity fund, this conference resulted, for the students, in a better understanding of a sector that is increasingly attractive.
According to the AFIC and Bloomberg, in 2017, the private equity sector recorded a 30% increase in investments in unlisted companies. The total sum of investments should exceed € 30 billion over the year and benefit more than 2,000 companies in France.
We wish warmly to thank Mr. Arthur Bureau for his coming and his involvement in the Alumni network!
