A record number of participants attend the fourth annual iNTERACT client conference in New York

This year’s iNTERACT conference featured the largest and most diverse group of private capital market participants to date.
More than 250 industry influencers, including representatives of some of the industry’s top private equity and venture capital firms, gathered at The Conrad Hotel for a day of networking and peer learning at the fourth annual iNTERACT.
iNTERACT brings the Ipreo Private Capital Markets’ community together to network, learn, and influence the future. Attendees can explore the latest industry trends, see how peers are using products to enhance performance, preview important new directions for the platform, and share user experiences to guide future development.
Event highlights included a keynote address by Laurence (L.T.) Tosi, CFO of AirBnB and former CFO at Blackstone in addition to presentations from representatives from MetLife, Blackstone, Hamilton Lane, Duff & Phelps, Carlyle Group, General Atlantic, and many other prominent firms. Enhancements to Ipreo Private Capital Markets products and services were also announced including two highly anticipated releases this summer, and scheduled releases throughout the remainder of 2016 and early 2017. Highlights include the launch of the iVal platform, enabling simplified valuation workflow natively in the iLEVEL platform, and expanded managed services for GP and LP clients.
“As our client base grows and diversifies, and as the private markets rapidly mature, the thought leadership generated at iNTERACT has become increasingly vital,” said Kevin Black, EVP of Ipreo Private Capital Markets. “The event is unique in bringing together many of the industry’s most influential GPs, LPs, Venture firms and service providers, and the resulting exchange of ideas is invaluable.”
In the evening, the event concluded with a client-appreciation cocktail reception featuring a range of entertainment, including world-renowned illusionist JB Benn, caricature artists, and live music by the Silver Arrows Band.
