In its 24 years of existence, the Private Equity Forum NRW e.V. (“PEF”) has made a name for itself with its regular events on topical subjects in the field of investments and practice-orientated presentations by experienced insiders from the industry.
It has always been our aspiration to present the topics and content, which are often difficult to understand and full of Anglicisms, in a way that is fresh, easy and entertaining to give non-insiders in particular an opportunity to understand the purpose of the customary practices in the investment market. Only in this way can our industry achieve some depth and find a wider audience. Private equity must, in other words, become “respectable”!
In addition to this, there is the philosophy of the PEF, which results in successful and well-attended lecture evenings time and again. The recipe for this is very simple: combine information with entertainment and brighten up the whole affair with a little light-heartedness. After all, at PEF, we don’t mind if you laugh!
