Malcolm Pobjoy at SuperReturn US East

20 June 2018

Malcolm Pobjoy, Group Commercial Director - Alternative Investments at Vistra, spoke at SuperReturn US East earlier this week which was held in Boston.

SuperReturn US East is one of the leading private equity and venture capital conferences in North America.

Malcolm moderated a panel entitled ‘From a deal making machine to an integral part of business’ which included panellists from Clearlake Capital Group, Cloverlay and Stepstone. The panel looked at how COOs and CFOs eventually migrate more to a strategical role rather than pure financial, working closely with LPs in the fundraising stages, and ensuring transparency and communication amongst other things.

Malcom also sat on a panel alongside people from Cebile Capital and Genstar Capital discussing ‘risk management on international investments and cross border compliance’. The panellists conversed about the risks to consider when investing outside of the US and how non-EU fund managers navigate European regulations.

A number of other key topics were discussed across panels throughout the day including:

  • Co-investments: regulatory interest and operational challenges. 
  • Transparency of investor reporting:  the use of ILPA reporting templates especially around fees and expenses.
  • Global growth: the opportunities and challenges of raising capital from investors across Europe and Asia as well as the great investment opportunities across the globe.
