Ipreo Private Capital Markets’ 2nd annual iNTERACT London conference focused on managing industry change

Participants from the industry's top GPs and Institutional Investors gathered to network and discuss key industry trends and technologies.
On October 19, 2017, Ipreo Private Capital Markets (PCM), the premier provider of portfolio data collection, analysis, valuation, and communications solutions for the private capital industry, hosted the 2nd annual iNTERACT London conference at BAFTA in Central London.
iNTERACT brings the Ipreo private capital community together to network, learn, and influence the future. Attendees can explore the latest industry trends, see how peers are using Ipreo products to enhance performance, preview important new directions for the platform, and share user experiences to guide future development.
"Our client community in EMEA faces unprecedented regulatory and political change,” said Melissa Ferraz, Managing Director and Global Head of Client Development at Ipreo PCM. “This year’s iNTERACT event was an opportunity to support our clients with best practices and technologies that help them become more nimble, resilient, and opportunistic in the face of a rapidly changing financial landscape.”
Kevin Black, EVP and Head of Private Capital Markets at Ipreo, kicked off the day's events with an opening session that explored the ways in which participants can seize industry momentum through new technologies and data-driven decision-making.
David O’Brien, head of Technology-Driven Business Transformation at Collaborative Elements, followed with a timely and thought-provoking keynote on leading through change. An award-winning leader, business developer, technologist, investor, and entrepreneur, O'Brien examined the techniques and tools that help organisations embrace change, manage conflict, and find the common ground that unlocks mutual value.
Additional conference highlights included peer case studies on transformative technologies delivered by representatives of Highland Europe, Warburg Pincus, and Herkules, panel sessions on best practices in private capital data collection and valuation, and a "solution room" that used peer consultation to turn conference ideas into step-by-step action plans.
The Ipreo PCM product roadmap was also unveiled, including new workflow, reporting, analytic, and valuation capabilities, and an exciting early glimpse of a single, seamless data ecosystem that will unite all private capital market participants in the near future.
iNTERACT London was launched to support the client base in the EMEA, which has increased by 700% since 2014. Ipreo PCM has tripled the staff in its London office since 2013 to better serve this fast-growing market and has launched a team in Hong Kong at the end of 2016 to serve its growing Asia Pacific client base.
